Say it isn't so...


Will tells me that he is too old to hold hands in public and to receive hugs and kisses. Just today I gave him a kiss on the cheek and he wiped it off. Isn't 4 a little young? sniff. sniff

At what age did you kiddo(s) decide that public affection was no longer acceptable?

My daughter is only 2 so we aren't there yet. I'm really not looking forward to that day either.

My 11-year-old recently decided he didn't want hugs or kisses at all.

Ha! I still try to hold my 12 year old`s hand when we cross the street. She is not too impressed, but if she wants something from me she will hold my hand.

My nephew was 2(!) when he decided he didn't kiss girls becuase they smell! Thanks fully my nieces are now 10 and 5 and they still come for cuddles and my littlest nephew is now 2 and hasn't learnt to argue yet!

My daughter is only 5 months old, but I was just thinking this morning, how I better take advantage of this time, and give her kisses and cuddles while I can! :)

It's interesting that my very affectionate 13 year old loves hugs and kisses now but at 4 would refuse to have any kisses at all!!!

Happy Friday Follow!

Awe that is sad. I think my son was about 10 when he get self conscious of Mommy's affection. My daughter is 20 and has never shied away from PDA's and will still hold my hand and be affectionate when appropriate.

Well he is a man... lol
My girls are 12 & 14... I think it started when they were about 10... but they are girls... so I'm sure it's different.
