I never thought this would come so soon. My 6 year old son told me, when I asked him why he wouldn’t let me kiss him especially when we were in school, “I’m all grown up. My classmates would see you giving me a kiss…” I got surprised when he said that. But I followed his answer up with a question: “What’s wrong with me kissing you?” But he was not able to reply as his classmates started coming in. I left the room feeling sad and kind of confused. I wanted to hug and kiss my kids always and let them know that I love them so much.

When I picked him up after school, he explained the reason. He said most of his classmates were brought to school by nannies so it’s expected that they won’t kiss their nannies, and vise versa. So it’s a bit embarrassing for them to be kissed in public because only a few do it there.

Elizabeth,
Oh no! :) We have tried to raise our daughters to be affectionate, and my 3-year old will let me kiss her good-bye. I practically maul my 1-year old when I leave her :) But I can understand your son't point - he actually made a very valid point for a 6-year old. Maybe you guys could kiss good-bye before you turn the corner, or come up with a secret gesture that tells each other how much you love each other, and to have a good day. I'm like you though - I don't want that milestone to come too quickly.
