Recently many celebrities have come under fire for sharing photos of themselves kissing their children on the lips.
Dr. Charlotte Reznick, a child and educational psychologist, says parents shouldn’t kiss their children on the lips because it’s too sexual.
“If you start kissing your kids on the lips, when do you stop? It gets very confusing,” she said during an interview.
“As a child gets to 4, or 5, or 6 and their sexual awareness comes about, the kiss on the lips can be stimulating to them.”
She adds: “Even if that never occurs to a child, it’s just too confusing! If Mummy kisses Daddy on the mouth and vice versa, what does that mean when I, a little girl or boy, kiss my parent on the mouth?”
Her comments have divided the online community but from a parenting perspective, should we set limits on lip-kissing our kids?
Here are some celebs who are anything but shy when it comes to showing affection to their children:
