Do you remember a week ago when the entire world mocked over about Victoria Beckham kissing her daughter on the lips? Was it bad that the mother smooched her kid with love?
Does that sound dirty to you?
We have a confession to make, a lot of mothers kiss their kids on their lips and it is not at all bad. And just like Victoria's kids, their kids are also fine. In fact, mothers do a lot of things that can make the Internet scowl but come on when it's the love for your kids, who GAF?
Here are the instances from the mothers around the world who share why kissing their kids is not bad for anyone and we cannot help but agree.
Let me make it clear, kissing my kid is just an expression of my love and affection for my children and we are all fine with it.
No one is in therapy and no one feels ill after being kissed and in fact, my kids are all healthy and feel loved. They are super secure in my arms.
Am I the worst mom ever? My kids get their share of screen time and get to watch movies and enjoy their screen time when they want to.
Is it a crime now? My kids get an A in their test and just like me when they are tired of their rough routine they love to relax on the couch.
I freely admit my kids to enjoy a good portion of junk food once in a week and it's not like I cook 100% organic food. I sometimes love to have confectionaries and my kids love cake.
Does that make me a killer because I am feeding my babies junk food?
My both kids are girls and they have seen my boobs. My elder daughter has seen me breastfeed my younger son and there have been some times when I had to change in front of my kids.
It's no biggie. Seriously, I am not jiggling them around or making a big deal about it. They are just boobs.
I am not sure if all mothers agree with this, but I talk quite often about periods when it comes to my daughters. I don't want them to fear from a natural cycle.
Why does everyone think that holding a baby in arms is spoiling them or their habit? There is nothing like holding your baby too much and to tell you that snuggle time is precious. It will be gone far too soon. Someday, they'll be all grown up and won't come in your arms.
There is nothing wrong in telling your child "Yes" once in a while. I mean it is completely okay if she wants to eat pasta and not tacos. It is entirely okay if she wants to jump into the pool wearing her dress. She can stay up 10 minutes late if her bedtime story is not done.
It's ok to say a "Yes" once in a while, and it's completely okay if you do not feel the way I do about parenting. I don't want any judgments and I won't be judging anyone either.
Let us know all the other semi taboos as a mom. We just hope a new celebrity doesn't get trolled for being a parent.
