Do you kiss your kids?

    Question for parents out there.

    On the movie thread I noted that I hope that when my son is 30 that he feels he could still give his dad a kiss. My son is 20 months old so obviously not an issue now as the little turd loves to give kisses and my 5 and a 1/2 year old daughter loves to kiss her parents as well.

    At what age does the kissing stop and does it stop for good? I can imagine that as a teenager the last thing they will want is a kiss from their dad but I would love it if it continued.

    Any thoughts? Does anyone here get kisses from their adult kids or teenagers? Do you want to?

    My mom kisses me every time I walk through the door. I'm 34.

    My mom died three years ago, when I was 34. I never stopped kissing her hello, goodbye and good night. I still do it with my dad.

    I still kiss my parents on the cheek every time I hug them.

    I'm in my 40s and I still give my mom a hug & kiss when I see her. I'd be doing the same for my dad if melanoma hadn't taken him 12 years ago.
    My son's 4-1/2 and likes to give his mom and dad hugs and kisses.

    My boys are 14 and 11 and I still kiss them. One of my pleasures is kissing them goodnight when they are asleep in bed before I got to bed.

    I stopped kissing my dad between something like 14 then started back up at about 40.

    Mom, never stopped.
