Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Make Out in Front of the Kids -- Don't You?

Awww! 14

Angelina JolieWell, it turns out celebrity parents are just like us! At least when it comes to grossing out their kids! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt recently got a request from 8-year-old daughter Zahara Jolie-Pitt to lay off the smooching in front of them!

With a daughter set to turn 8 in just a few weeks, I'm waiting to hear the same thing out of her mouth. But will I listen to her? Not on her life!

And neither should Brad and Angie! At least not if they know what's good for their big brood?

Kissing in front of our kids is not just a right and privilege, the way I see it, it's good for them.

Note I said kissing. Not sex. Not a 15-minute-long make-out session with tongues and groping of one another's asses.

But a kiss hello or goodbye? A spontaneous swoop in just to say "honey, I love you" while you're making dinner? I'm all about that kind of PDA in front of my kid

When her dad and I kiss or when Brad and Angie kiss in front of Zahara and her siblings, the message that's being sent is one of love. You're modeling a healthy relationship, one that they'll remember when they get older and start looking for someone to settle down with.

Moments of love between parents are also reassuring for kids. With divorce a pretty common thing in America these days, most kids have at least a handful of friends whose parents aren't together anymore. I know my daughter has asked if that's going to happen to us; just because it's happened to her friends' parents. When she sees us kiss or hug or hold hands, we're sending her a message that things are OK here at home, that she doesn't need to worry -- everything's good on the home front.

Considering their relationship is constantly being splashed on magazine covers (and more than a few times there have been rumors of breakups), Angelina and Brad have to send the same message to their kids, and those kisses do a world of wonder. Even if they do gross them out!

Do you kiss in front of your kids? What do the kids say about it?

I kiss and hug my husband all the time in front of the kids. No, I don't "make out" with him in front of them, but we are very affectionate. I feel that it's important for them to see how a good relationship works. I am divorced from their father, and he was in a very dysfunctional relationship with screaming and fighting all the time. I don't want my kids to think that is "normal." My parents used to kiss in front of me and I thought it was "gross" as a kid. LOL :)

Kissing, yes. Not sex or makeout sessions.. I agree. Kissing and hugging are healthy affection, both in public and around the kids. It shows that we have a healthy relationship. If it ever stops, then there's obviously a problem.

Yes I kiss my boyfriend in front our son. A lot of the time he'll grab both of us behind the neck and pull us together for a kiss. We laugh about it and think it's cute of course our son is only 19 months old though.

I would kiss or hug my bf or hubby if I had either, but definitely not make out or have sex in front of my 8 year old.

Kissing, hugging, and holding hands yes.

Kissing is one thing but this article about Angelina and brad says making out. Although there isn't anything horrible about making out infront of kids (assuming it's your husband or future husband not boyfriend of 2 weeks) I still think it's indecent. I am uncomfortable when anyone makes out in front of me let alone my parents. I also think it's disrespectful to them since no kid wants to see that. We kiss our kids, I'm not saying that's wrong, but if brad and Angelina are referring to making out in the way I think of it, I don't think it's okay

Nothing wrong with kissing but who knows what kind of kissing angelina is doing in front of her children I hope nothing like she did with her brother :p

She was also making out with Brad when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Healthy relationship, my foot.

My husband will dip me backwards and lay one on me. My 6 & 5 year old will scream ewwww and cooties. But what I notice is they all laugh and giggle even the 2 year old. Kids should see love~ My parents raised me sleeping in different parts of the house. They finally divorced and I was glad.
