Reading and catching up with the weeks gossip, I saw a picture of Victoria Beckham kissing her little girl Harper on the lips and wishing her a happy birthday.
My first reaction was that it was super cute and sweet.
So I was then amazed to see her being trolled for putting this picture on Instagram.
So we cannot kiss our children on the lips anymore? Come on guys, really!
Kissing our children should be a normality, and definitely not something to be frowned upon. I try and kiss my little man on the lips all the time – but he just runs away from me yelling ‘no mummy.’
Surely we want our children to grow up in a world where they are not afraid of showing their affection and feelings. So please someone explain to me and offer a suitable argument for not kissing our children on the lips?
It isn’t sexual and doesn’t mean anything other than that you love them. It is a way of showing that we care about our family and children.
I know people that still kiss their parents on the lips and they are grown up now.
There has been loads of support for the Beckham’s with a lot of mums sharing pictures of themselves kissing their little ones – well good on them.
I am also writing this to show my support. To shout that it isn’t wrong to kiss your child on the lips and that it is completely normal.
I probably try and kiss my child more than my husband on the lips if I am honest – I am sure he won’t mind me confessing that one!
So lets celebrate all the mummy’s, and daddy’s that express their love for their children by kissing them on the lips…and to all of those that don’t deem it appropriate to do so….fair enough!
