The Internet is typically in some sort of polarizing debate; however, this one seemingly sparked out of nowhere when former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham kissed her child.
On the lips. This is an age old debate (one which I think has no room for argument unless it’s open mouth)….should a parent be kissing their child on the lips or not and at what age stop?
Yes, there were definitely those in support but also a bevy of anti-kid kissing comments.
- “It’s weird for me to see that. When I think of someone who’s kissing on the lips then I think of two partners who are in love with each other.”
- “This is so normal and sweet anyone looking at this as anything other then that has real issues.”
Personally, I still attempt to kiss my children on the lips before leaving, when they wake up, or when I just want to show them I care. My daughter is 6 and still thinks it’s sweet; my son is 7-and-a-half and only gets embarrassed in front of his friends. So I don’t do it….or try as a quick way to embarrass him and entertain myself.
All joking aside, what do you all think? What age is appropriate too? I think what would be more disturbing is for siblings to kiss each other on the mouth (refer to the infamous Angelina Jolie and brother red carpet smooch for a visual, ha)!
