When Did Kissing Your Child on the Lips Become Outrageous?

Once again I’m reminded that I need to stay away from celebrity trash on the Internet.  I can’t help myself, sometimes it’s just too hard to look away, especially when the story is so ridiculous. The latest train wreck is the “outrage” over Victoria Beckham kissing her daughter on the lips. What? Since when did kissing your child on the lips become outrageous? I must have missed that memo from the self-righteous Mommy police.

Judy-isms kissing on lips

As one can imagine, this topic has drawn as much sharp criticism as it has support, and to the critics I can only hope you soon get a life and re-channel your angst towards a more worthy topic. As parents, specifically mothers, we are constantly teaching our children about respect, honesty, integrity, and just how to be good people. Why must we shame those – famous or not – who just wish to capture a sweet moment with the most important person in their lives? Parenting is about making personal choices and whether you decide to kiss your child on the lips or not is your business and no one else’s. What say you?
