I have a 3 year old DS. His grandma (my MIL) kisses him on the lips, which he doesn't mind, despite the fact that she's been asked not to.
I hate it. It's not something I ever did with my parents or any other relative. I think it's unnecessary. I think it spreads germs and when it comes time to talk to DS about sexual harassment/ appropriate behaviour, I want his mouth to be an 'exclusion zone', ie, adults don't kiss him on the mouth or put anything in his mouth. I think having his grandma mack him on an exclusion zone will be confusing.
I respect the fact that not everyone feels this way so this is purely what I want with my son. Absolutely no judgement to anyone who kisses their kids on the mouth.
DH doesn't like it but his mother kissed him on the mouth too when he was young so he just doesn't want to start a fight with her.
What do you think I should do?
