Kandi Burruss Doesn't Care What You Think About Her Kissing Her Son on the Lips

I mean she is HIS mom, she made those lips!

What is everyones issue with parents showing genuine love and having loving connections with their own children.

The Real House Wives of Atlanta, my fav mom recently captioned a cute pic of her (already reading) 3-year-old son, Ace Wells Tucker: "Some people don’t think you should kiss your kids on the lips but I made those lips! This is my baby boy I’ll shower him with kisses!

I mean who’s really concerned with how this child is loved his parents are millionaires, he already is and he can read at 3. Which is a lot more than most adults.

And she's right. The topic of parents kissing kids on the mouth is one that often draws criticism. Remember the backlash when David Beckham shared a snapshot on IG where he was kissing his own daughter on the lips?

Or, even more recently, 25-year-old Colombian singer Maluma shared a Mother’s Day snap of him kissing his mom — and many of his 42 million Instagram followers had questions. (His rep later said that it was a "cultural thing," and that "the photo was truly a [sign] of genuine affection,” adding, "In the Latin culture, as in many other cultures, kissing your parent on the lips is normal.”)

So, are the questions just coming from cultural differences, parent-shamers and people simply not minding their damn business? And, if you see nothing wrong with it but are confronted by critics for a kiss, what should you do?

Many relationship experts simply advise ignoring the trolls. A parents love is real.

“There are plenty of non-sexual ways people show affection for each other,” says a relationship expert . “In some cultures, friends greet with kisses and hold hands. Any time you connect with your child through non-sexual touch and affection it releases oxytocin which makes you feel more bonded.”

“Lots of people mistake that show of parental affection for sexual behavior — which it isn’t intended to be," relationship expert April Masini added. "Kissing children on the lips is often misconstrued.”

OK, no snap judgments, got it.

But is there any danger in giving your kids a smooch on the mouth?

No more risk than kissing anyone else.

I kiss my five year old on the lips, cheek, forehead, nose lol at least 15+ times a day.

Sometimes we play a kissing game where she can’t escape the kisses 😘 and she never wants too, she smiles hard closes her eyes and moves her head in a circular motion like “kiss here” lol
