The posting of 45-year-old David Beckham on Instagram has once again caused controversy among fans. On Tuesday, the ex-footballer showed a picture of him kissing his nine-year-old daughter Harper on the lips. Together they picked cabbage, lettuce, and other vegetables and posed for a photo with autumn wreaths (which would surely be the perfect decoration for their front door in the Cotswolds), which they made themselves, and had fun at the Daylesford organic farm in Gloucestershire. 46-year-old Victoria Beckham also shared family shots. So the followers began to argue whether it was appropriate to kiss children on the lips.
I love my family, but I never understood my parents kissing on the lips.
Please stop kissing children on the lips!
Why is he kissing her on the lips? I am always uncomfortable when I see kisses on the lips with babies and children, but I am almost sure that I myself have done it many times with my children or little nephews without hesitation.
People perceive kissing on the lips as an intimate act between lovers, but in some cultures, they do this to anyone.

Many fans have written words of encouragement.
Thank you for showing that it is perfectly normal and correct for a father to kiss his daughter on the lips as a sign of love and true affection!
I have always kissed my children on the lips, and I have no problem with that, and neither do they. I think this is a sweet and innocent gesture.
I still kiss my children on the lips, because they are my children and I love them,
вЂ” wrote fans in defense of David.
This is not the first time David has shown netizens photos of him kissing his daughter on the lips. In 2017, the athlete was forced to explain his actions. He said that he is вЂњvery attached to his family,вЂќ so he does not consider it wrong to show his love like that. While participating in a Facebook live stream on his official page during a trip to Bangkok, he explained that he kisses all his children on the lips except for his eldest son Brooklyn.
Except for Brooklyn. Brooklyn is 18, so he might find it a little weird, but I'm very attached to kids,
вЂ” Beckham said then.
