Just curious, as a non-parent, why would the time frame change dependent upon the sex of your child?
Should I end up with a child, or children, a peck on the lips would be ok to a certain age independent of sex. The obvious issue being a kiss on the lips interpreted/perceived as inherently sexual. If that's the case, you shouldn't be kissing either son or daughter on the lips; at least that's the conclusion I was led to.
And I call my parents mommy/ma & daddy/dad. Idgaf, they will always be your mommy and daddy. Y'all got issues.
Tbh, it's mostly due to the gender of the child.
Mentally, I feel just a little more comfortable showing my daughter that affection a little longer than my son.
My son will always be loved just as much and will be shown just as much love and affection as my daughter (whenever I have one), but I guess it's just that father daughter relationship that mentally makes it a little more acceptable to give my 4 year old daughter a peck before work rather than my son.
As a parent, you always want some love or some "sugar" from your kids, so I'm always going to want a hug or something.
It's just a double standard I guess.
I wouldn't want to go in to give my son a lil kiss before dropping him off somewhere and embarrass him in front of his boys. You know how kids can get.
Just like when he gets older, I'll be more accepting to him kissing a girl more so than my daughter kissing a boy for the first time. It's just one of those things
