Is it okay for fathers to kiss their children on the lips?

by Staff writer

Whether or not parents should kiss their kids on the lips has been a topic of hot debate over the years.

Recently, the Twitter community exploded after a video showing NFL star Tom Brady kissing his 10-year-old son on the lips emerged.

Brady, 40, lying on a table was getting a massage when his son, Jack, entered the room.

When 10-year-old Jack gave his dad a peck, the NFL star called him back.

“That was like a peck,” Brady says.

Half walking away, Jack lets out a sigh and an eye roll before walking back to his dad and kissing him again for a few more seconds.

Immediately after kissing Brady, he keeps discussing his fantasy team with the NFL star’s masseuse and wipes his mouth with his shirt.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of reactions came up on Twitter after the clip was shared with commenters weighing in on whether or not it was appropriate.

Former boxing champion Nigel Benn sparked a similar controversy 2 years ago after giving his son who had just won his first professional fight via knockout a congratulatory kiss on the lips on live television.

Obviously, in reaction to the Brady video, US writer Adam Lamb recently posted a video of himself kissing his son on Instagram.

‘My son and I kiss like this daily,” Adam wrote.

“The problem is that not enough Dads do the same. I know what it is like to have a father that couldn’t show love and I also know what it is like to BE a father and show a ton of love to my son.

“One of the biggest problems we have in this country is men and proper masculinity,” the mid-30-year-old author added.

  1. I am fifty-seven years old. Growing up in the Sixties and Seventies my Dad was always very affectionate toward my brother and me. Kisses on the lips were customary in our house; if he did not kiss us we would think he was angry.
