Well done AngryFeet. You sound like a great mum. Not judgemental, but practical and fosters the best for their kids. Serious respect!

Thanks Allegra. To be honest I think it is pretty normal and agree it does go on quite a lot. I wasn't too freaked out just thought I shouldn't turn a blind eye so last night made sure they stayed in their own rooms but didn't say it was because of that but that they need to stop mucking around and stay in their own beds to sleep. Seemed to work pretty well smile

I think it will go away on it's own. When they're old enough they will be mortified.

I actually think things like this go on quite often, but are treated as 'secrets' as you say. It's just experimenting. It's a little uncouth in our culture and seen as uneasy, but it will stop. Don't worry.

You handled this exceptionally well.

Would it not just be an extension of playing mums and dads then?

We don't generally 'snog' in front of the kids either!

I think you handled it well Angry I'm sure they are just enjoying the closeness and messing about, but yes, I would want to put a stop to it too.

Sorry no wise advice, except to keep checking on them when they should be in their own rooms.

No i suppose they have but not often. We peck on the lips lots during the day but not actual snogging generally.

Have they never seen you snogging your dp/dh confused

Have no idea what to say that could help just find it odd the only kissing they have seen has been on tv.

Help! My DD admitted today that she and DS (8 and 6 respectively) have been kissing with tongues at night. I think they sneak into each others rooms while we are making dinner downstairs. They thought it was a bit funny but DS got annoyed that I knew their "secret".

I didn't shout I just said that kissing with tongues was something grownups did when in love and that it wasn't something you should do with someone in your own family.

DD said ok but DS got a bit upset and said he likes it and doesn't want to stop. Apparently it was his idea. I asked where he had seen that to get the idea from and he said he had made it up. Although to be fair there are several films where people kiss that kids watch (not sure it is apparent that tongues are used though).

What do I do? I guess they are just experimenting but I am a bit concerned that I want to do the right thing.
