No I don't think it's a good idea to kiss your own or anyone else's children on the lips. This article is spot on.

This comment was too good to show it to everyone.
I don’t see a problem kissing your kids on the lips...like a peck. My mother kissed me on my lips, as well as my grandmother, and now I kiss my son on his lips. It is a parents job to explain that this is meant only for the two of them. I don’t see any issues People are so uptight!

I think that there is too many psychologists, if people spend as much time with their children instead of reading what you should or shouldn't do with them from people who probably don't have any, children would be a lot happier. Those psychologist must think that kids are stupid because I kissed my kids on the lips and my grandkids on the lips but if someone else want to kiss them they offer their cheeks..... Talk to your children they are intelligent people...

On the lips? that's a bit extreme and the child might mistake this to be a casual thing.

Absolutely not ive seen pictures of a child that was already immune compromised and developed a serious infection that they will have the rest of their lives. It looked so incredibly painful it broke my heart.

I kissed my children on their lips until they were able to understand the differences in sexes. Even before then we discussed safe and unsafe touches on age appropriate levels they could understand. They understand that mom and dad were the only people who got kisses like that and only then it was at their comfort level or ours if it went on too long. So, I’m fine with it, within reason.

I'm 42, and my parents used to kiss me and my sister on the lips (and still do) since I was born, and even have an aunty who do that to us too. Never kissed other kids in the lips, in school, or anything like that. You can kiss the lips of your kids, and tell them that this is just a family thing, and they'll respect that, because they will not see you kissing people on the lips in the street. A bit of common sense, should apply. If you don't like it, don't do it.

I don't think kissing children's on their lip be it your own or others is a good Idea. Because Children's acquire every thing from their parents and a person grown with such traditions will get it hard to avoid it in later ages or he/she will get it hard when they learn it is forbidden to kiss any ones lip when they get adult.
