What Is the Appropriate Age For the First Kiss Conversation?

While many moms and dads fret about having the birds and the bees conversation with their children, some never broach the topic of the first kiss. Kids' lips can meet in puppy love on the playground or years down the road for late bloomers. In last night's episode of Mad Men, Sally Draper planted a wet one on her friend, Ernie, while the two innocently pretended they were driving in a car as they sat in an empty bathtub. After hearing about the incident, Betty told her daughter, "You don’t kiss boys, boys kiss you. Your first kiss will be very special.” Since smooching happens early — even in preschool these days, when do you think it's the best time for parents to talk about a lip-lock to their tots?

If you have strong opinions on moms of the small screen like Betty Draper, mosey on over to the Television Moms group in the LilSugar Community to discuss topical issues from recent episodes of shows.
