    I kiss both my kids on the lips and never really thought twice about it. I will also kiss my mum, dad, nan and pop on the lips but the rest of my family get cheek kisses. I've never really thought about why this is but its just the way it has always been. My husband on the other hand doesn't kiss any one but me on the lips, including our kids. He was brought up that you only kiss on the cheek so does what he is comfortable with.

    I kiss my DD on the lips, DS is a bit old now and would prefer a hug.

    I'm ok lip kissing my own kids, but prefer not to kiss other people's kids and I wouldn't make mine kiss someone else just because.

    I kiss DS on the lips when he wants a kiss.

    He also kisses his nanny, my sister and his daycare mum when he wants one.

    Im not sure what his fathers side do. My dad wont give/receive kisses and opt for a highfive, thumbs up or a little cuddle and my brother would just get them on the cheek

    I think that its a parents right to choose either way to kiss there kids.

    We grew up in a kiss on the cheek, even with our parents. We have a massive family and it can get so annoying saying good bye as everyone wants to give you a kiss on the cheek lol.

    I kiss DD on the cheek, top of head and sometimes on the lips. I am trying to teach her to learn to kiss and she thinks its funny when I give her a kiss then pull away quickly and go 'mwaaah'. To her its a game. As she gets older I'll teach her about a kiss on the cheek.

    DP kisses DD on the forehead. Thats his thing.

    We have a few family members who like to kiss on the lips but I just turn my head as I don't like it and I'll teach DD to turn her head, so she gets kissed on the cheek.

    The only people I don't care if they lip kiss DD is my Nan and Granddad.

    I always kiss my ds's on the lips. For ds and I to kiss the boys on the lips is fine, anyone else can kiss them on the cheek. Same applies for ds when he wants to kiss someone, unless it's Dh or I he kisses them on the cheek. Not that we have ever enforced it, it's just the way it has worked out which is great.

    I don't kiss DD on the lips, but she often does me - and that's fine.

    The only reason I don't is that it's not something I 'naturally' do - no more thought goes into it than that. I don't think there's anything wrong with it.

    I'd probably discourage others from kissing her on the lips because of the germ/ cold sore thing, but having said that I don't know anyone who does do that - so it's a bit of a non issue.

    Each to their own.

    We kiss my 4 year old on the lips always have.. Though now he's getting older he's decided he doesn't like kisses and would rather kiss cheeks.. So we kiss on cheeks now :-)

    I kiss the kids on the lips, I don't really have a choice, I have a toddler coming at me full pelt demanding a kiiissssss! They also blow kisses which from the 15 month in particular is just adorable.
