Last month David Beckham published a selfie with Harper, his 7-year-old daughter, while on vacation in Tanzania. In the photo both share a kiss in the mouth with an amazing sunset behind them, and although many perceived it as a very tender image, others considered it completely inappropriate.
On this controversial subject, psychologists have different points of view. On one hand, the child psychologist, Dr. Fiona Martin, described kissing children on the lips as “beautiful”.
“Everything that promotes emotional connectivity is good,” he said. “It certainly is not inappropriate to kiss your son.”
However, Dr. Charlotte Reznick, a child and educational psychologist at the University of California, said, “If you start kissing your children on the lips, when do you stop? It becomes very confusing.”
What do you say? Is David okay? Or do you go too far with your paternal love?
