A kiss for my child…

 I’m a stickler for my blog schedule so when I post something out of the blue, something adhoc. Something unplanned. Nine times out ten it’s because something has pissed me off or rattled my cage.

That happened today when I saw this:

I’d just got home from work. Welcomed by my gorgeous little boy with a big hug and a big kiss. On the lips. Then low and behold I saw this pathetic excuse of an article in the Daily Mail and I nearly choked on my lunch.

I mean, really?! What the actual hell?!

Someone please tell me what kind of world are we now living in if we are being told by strangers that it is deemed UNACCEPTABLE to kiss our OWN CHILDREN on the lips?!

To say it’s sick is sick itself. Anyone who thinks it is wrong clearly has a problem and needs to take a look at their own issues.

It’s not sexual. It’s not perverted. It’s showing love and affection to a child whom I made and created. A child I gave birth to.

Tell me, do these people realise how childbirth works? Is that too sick and perverted aswell?! Is breastfeeding sick and perverted or is it giving your baby the best bonding opportunity and nutrients you see fit?

I’m shocked and disgusted to the core about this and it has wound me up beyond belief. So much so I’m sat here getting it off my chest. I know I’m not alone in this. Many of the Mummy Tweeters I follow feel completely the same and have been posting their own pictures in support of Victoria & Harper Beckham’s beautiful picture. So I’m here doing the same.

I’m off to kiss my little boy goodnight. Because he’s mine and I can. Ain’t no sick and twisted stranger gonna tell me otherwise.



Tell me your thoughts….?

    Absolutely nothing wrong with parents kissing their kids on the lips. My parents still do it. That “reporter” has too much time on their hands.

    I completely agree with you! This is such bullshit.
    I got really agree when I saw this story too, poor Victoria.
    I give my children kisses on the mouth a thousand times a day, and I will until they longer want me to and get embarrassed.
    I agree that the people who think it’s sick are clearly the sick ones.
    I wouldnt kiss anyone elses child on the lips, but my own, my flesh and blood of course I will cover them with kisses all day long!

      I think we are all in agreement here. I’ve yet to speak to a parent who thinks otherwise. Thank you for reading 🙂

    I have a five year old daughter and plan to kiss her on the lips for as long as she will let me. Anybody that has a problem with it, I have something that they can give a great big kiss on #pocolo

    Haha that made me laugh. Good for you. They will soon be too embarrassed to let us. Until then, I won’t be stopping 🙂 Thanks for reading.

    Hi Jaki, I couldn’t believe the uproar about Victoria kissing her own daughter on the lips. It’s a sordid world we live in when people can turn a parent kissing their child on the lips into a sexual thing.

    I saw this in the Daily Mail, and my first thought was “What the hell” what is wrong with that, definitely some Daily Mail tripe. There is nothing wrong with it, they’re kids, and it’s not sexual one bit. You’ve lit a little fire in me thinking back to that article. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

    Coulfn’t agree more and I keep meaning to post about this too, I think about it every time I give my babies a kiss! Always on the lips and will be as long as they aren’t embarassed. I think it totally says more about the people thinking more into it than a lovely parent child kiss xx

    It’s called desensitization, and it’s a well-known effect of exposing children to things like sex and alcohol at such an early age. By the time they’re older, self-imposed “limits” don’t register as limits at all. I don’t want my child kissing other children and, furthermore, in a culture full of sexual predators, I don’t want there to be any confusing boundaries when it comes to what is and isn’t appropriate behavior.

      Always interesting to receive a comment with a different opinion. I can only speak from experience. I received kisses like this from my parents as a child and it never sexualised anything for me. I didn’t go around kissing other children and was taught the rights from the wrongs in terms of what’s acceptable. I just find it very sad that parents can be criticised for showing their children a completely innocent form of affection.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with it – in fact this whole thing is just odd. You’re right it’s not sexual or perverted full stop. Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo x
