My boy and his dog.

My son (3 years) lays on the floor and lets the dog kiss (lick) his face. What scares me is that he doesn't want me to see it. He yells at me to leave the room. I've walked in about 4-6 times over the past year to see this. I've tried to ask him why he doesn't want mommy to see. Is he ashamed because it feels good? It worries me, but i"m not sure why...it's just so weird.

I sure will. I see his doctor in a few month and will ask him if he has any ideas.

Let me know if you get it figured out, Krista...that's a mystery!

No. Actually I acted like it was no big deal, because at the time, I didn't think it was. I may have said, "Awww, Tucker's giving you kisses!" He could barley talk at that time, but made it clear he wanted me to get out. I really never thought about again until it happened again and he said, "I don't want you to watch Tucker kiss me!" So yeah, it's weird to me.

So, does he go to grandparents, or other relatives that would have reprimanded him? At some point, he was reprimanded by someone for it...that is the only reason I could think that he'd think it was wrong.

Hopefully you figure it out!

No. That's why I am so baffled. I was just like..aw Tucker is giving you kisses, and acted like it was no big deal. He was about 26-28 months at that time and he was hiding behind the bedroom door. I never thought anything of it...until it happened again and again. Then I started to question him, but he ignores me when I try to ask him about it.

How did you react the first time the dog kissed him? Were you upset? Did you make it seem like a bad thing?

That's most likely why he doesn't want you to see, because he's been in trouble for it before.
