    No and I refuse to allow people to try and bribe them for their affection...you know things like 'if you don't give me a kiss I'm going to be really sad.'
    I just say 'no they won't, they're just tricking and you don't need to kiss them if you don't want to.'
    I worry about them not feeling confident to say no to a sexual predator if they start kissing family members/friends to not hurt their feelings.

    No I wouldn't make them !!!
    I remember being a kid mum never made us do it.... but she use to let friends and family hug & kiss us i hated it!!!
    I also get uncomfortable when friends tell the kids to hug and kiss me
    Goodbye .... I ll hug them but kissing to me is a bit more personal!!

    I ask if she's got a kiss goodbye for Nanna / Poppy / Aunty, and more often than not she'll head but their lips (her version of kiss is to let them kiss her forehead, and she can be a bit enthusiastic ). She's also good at giving high fives, waves, or the cold shoulder as she sees fit

    We prompt DS when it's time to say goodbye with "do you have kisses and cuddles for such and such" but never force. We've taught DS to shake hands as well and he says "pleasure bye bye"

    My DS won't kiss anyone period. He will give me a peck very rarely, but that's it.
    If people ask him for a kiss he'll tilt his forehead towards them. That's it, that's the best they're gonna get! He's not an overly affectionate type, never has been.
    He's six.

    Our DD on the other hand we have to reel in and stop her from kissing too many people... She's four and relishes kisses and cuddles.
    We only stop her when she's non stop kissing or trying to cuddle strangers.


    Our children are people and deserve the right to choose what happens with their bodies.
