David Beckham Sparks Debate Again After Kissing Daughter Harper

David Beckham Sparks Debate Again After Kissing Daughter Harper

David Beckham has found himself once again at the heart of an online discussion about what is ‘appropriate’ when it comes to how he behaves with his kids.

Beckham posted a selection of lovely photograph of himself out for a walk with his 10-year-old daughter Harper, and some people are really put out by the fact that the loving dad and his daughter shared a kiss on the lips.

First thing’s first, it’s really up to David Beckham what he decides to be appropriate with his daughter – obviously within reason – but that still hasn’t stopped people from weighing in with their opinions on the former England footballer and his parenting style.

The 46-year-old Manchester United legend posted the pictures on his Instagram this Friday, captioning the snaps: “Daddy & Princess Leia had a lovely walk this morning.”

In one of the shots, David and Harper were giving each other a peck on the lips.

To most right-minded people it seems completely innocuous, but for others online it seems to have touched a nerve.

One person said: “Why do you kiss your daughter on the lips? It’s weird and inappropriate,”

Another said: “Although this is very sweet, please do not kiss your daughter on the lips.”

A third person said: “Enough with the kissing on the lips already!!”

Honestly, it’s really surprising how much ire he has attracted – yet again – for the way he behaves around his daughter.

This is far from the first time that Beckham has been pulled up for this sort of thing.

Yet another person who criticised Beckham suggested that he ‘show [his] love’ by ‘kissing on the forehead, cheek, etc’ but not kiss her on the mouth because Harper is ‘not a baby anymore and kisses on the lips are unacceptable’.

Really? It’s a very strange hill to die on, especially when it’s not your child or your life.

Luckily, some folks have defended Beckham, even admitting that they still kiss members of their family in the same way.

One supporter commented: “40-plus years old and I still kiss my mom on the lips AND I kiss my 11 and 14 year old sons on the lips. People need to worry about themselves and not stupid s**t,”

Someone else pre-empted the whole thing, writing: “Beautiful. Wait for the ‘don’t kiss your child on the lips’ complete weirdo comments.”

It bears saying once again, this is a very strange thing to be worried about when it comes to someone else.
