I don't see anything wrong with that. They are just showing affection to their children. The problem with society is they are making an issue out of nothing. There are other things that need attention than this.

True. There is nothing wrong with parents giving their kids a smack kiss on the lips. I actually find it sweet for the kids giving their parents a kiss too when they are happy or want to show how they love their parents for being so kind and loving to them.

That is perfectly fine! It is just a smack kiss on the lips! Hello!

I don't mind! It is pretty normal.

That is fine. Let us not put any malice or whatsoever. This is father and daughter.

It depends. Sometimes it is not necessary.

Fathers need not kiss their children on the lips I think.

I don't mind and I don't find it weird.

I don't think it is proper. The kids can get confused as to what kissing is for and who they can kiss and when.

Fathers can show affection too.

I don't see any wrong with this one.

A parent kissing their kids is natural. Why would anyone put any malice in that? It's not like you're kissing a total stranger.

I read somewhere that kissing your kids on the lips can be unhygienic. You're transferring germs to them directly. So it's not about malice, it's more of hygiene.

Kids are fine with that. It's the adults that make a big deal of a parent showing their kid affection. Frankly, people are too critical of things that shouldn't even be an issue.

I don't see why not. It's their child and they can shower them with love and affection. Their kids would grow up to be affectionate people.

My mom has always been affectionate. She'd kiss us on the lips all the time. We all get the same treatment from her and it's normal to be affectionate in our family.

It would be wrong if a parent was frenching her kid. It's just a smack so no big deal.

This isn't anything scandalous. A parent and a child has a different bond and that shouldn't be mistaken for something else.

Some parents kiss their kids on the lips even if they're adults. If they grew up like that, I don't see anything wrong with kissing.

On the cheek is fine. On the lips, it could get awkward when you're an adult. It just seems weird to me.
