Controversially

The expert warns - do not kiss children on the lips. He is right?


Some kiss their children on the lips and do not see anything strange in this, others do not, they indicate that it is not hygienic. There is also a third group that emphasizes that as long as the child and the parent kiss on the lips does not cause embarrassment and shame, as long as everything is fine. Scientists decided to enter these various opinions by expressing their own opinion. The voice of a lady who said clearly - was particularly loud - kissing children on the lips is not good because it is "too sexual".

Dr. Charlotte Reznick, author of The Power Of Your Child's Imagination, writes: "A kiss on the lips can be a form of stimulation ... It's just too complicated. If mum kisses dad on the lips and vice versa, it refers to the situation when a little girl or boy kisses her parents on the lips. If I had to answer when to stop kissing my children on the lips, I'd say now.

The scientist goes even further - he notes that lips are an erogenous zonewhich should not be carelessly stimulated by parents.

Not all researchers agree with this view. "There is absolutely no reason why kissing a small child on the lips can be perceived in a way other than a normal gesture of tenderness," says clinical psychologist Sally-Anne McCormack. "It's like saying: breastfeeding can be confusing for a child. Some people may have problems with natural feeding, but it has absolutely nothing to do with sexual stimulation. "
