urgh was confronted with this last night. I can't stand it. apart from seeming a bit pervy, I can't stand it for the germ factor!
I'm pregnant and had a 2 year old thrust at me for a kiss. I offered my cheek and was told by the parents "we're teaching her to kiss on the lips". wtf. I didn't want to be rude but no way am I kidsing a germy kid, so I just said sorry, I don't like kissing on the lips. they seemed ok with it.
I don't like it from a child's perspective either. what if an adult has a cold sore? or some peedo type that gets off on little kids?
lips is for 2 adults kissing, that's what I'll be teaching my kids anyway.
