One dad is refusing to back down after receiving shocking backlash online for kissing his son on the lips, as trolls have told him that his son might then kiss other adults and think it’s OK; now in this viral video, Tom explains why he should kiss his son on the lips.
“Don’t Kiss Your Children on the Lips. Fact!!”
As the negative comments poured in, Tom felt he should address concerns head-on in this fiery viral video.
One unbelievable comment caught Tom’s attention: “Don’t kiss your children on the lips. Fact!! Because not all humans have the right intentions, do you see what I’m saying ? Don’t make it acceptable !”
With a firm tone, he confronted the critics, shedding light on his love with his beloved son. “I find it worrying that it bothers you,” he argued, standing up for the kisses he affectionately gives his 5-year-old child.
“I will kiss my five-year-old son on the lips for as long as I deem necessary and as long as he lets me,” he affirmed.
“One Day, He Won’t Want Me to and Probably Won’t Want Much To Do With Me. So, for Now, I’ll Carry On as I Am.”
“Because I love him to bits, and he’s my best pal. One day, he won’t want me to and probably won’t want much to do with me. So, for now, I’ll carry on as I am.”
Critics say he is enabling “inappropriate behavior,” so Tom met the challenge head-on, offering this counterargument.
“So the logic here is if I kiss my five-year-old, he will think that he can go off and it’s OK to kiss strangers, strange adults… obviously!” he exclaimed.
Tom presented other scenarios such as these to ridicule the logic. “So let’s apply that logic. I can’t have him in my car anymore to take him places because he could get in a stranger’s car and think that’s normal.”
“He’s Got a Mummy and a Daddy, and Kissing Them Is Normal, but Kissing Dodgy Barry Down the Road Is a Bit Weird”
“He can’t live in my house anymore because… well, he could just walk into a stranger’s house and think that’s normal,” he continues.
With each word, Tom’s love and devotion became more evident.
He then empathizes with teaching children the difference between correct behavior and inappropriate behavior.
“Or we could, now hear me out, we could… teach him that he’s got a mummy and a daddy, and kissing them is normal, but kissing dodgy Barry down the road is a bit weird.”
