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 okay. Now, in this viral video, Tom explains why he should kiss his son on the lips.
Devoted Dad Blasts Critics in Viral Video
As the negative comments poured in, Tom felt like he should address concerns head-on in this fiery viral video.
Hurtful Comment Sparks Outrage From Father
One unbelievable comment in particular caught Tom’s attention, reading, “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 !”
Confronting Critics Head On
With a firm tone, Tom confronted the critics, shedding light on the love he shares with his beloved son.
Standing Up for Himself in Heartwarming Fashion
“I find it worrying that it bothers you,” he argued, standing up for the kisses he affectionately gives to his 5-year-old child.
“I will kiss my son, my five-year-old child, on the lips for as long as I deem necessary and as long as he lets me,” he affirmed.
Defiance in His Love for His Son
“Because I love him to bits and he’s my best pal. One day, he won’t want me to, and he probably won’t want much to do with me. So, for now, I’ll carry on as I am.”
He Stood His Ground
Critics say he is enabling “inappropriate behaviour,” so Tom met the challenge head-on, offering this counterargument.
Putting Down Ridiculous Logic
“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.”
Emphasising His Point
“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.
How to Teach Your Child the Right Way
He then emphasizes teaching children the difference between correct behaviour and inappropriate behaviour.
Important Final Thoughts
“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.”
Floods of Support for Emotional Father
The comments were flooded with support for the father, “Comments like that makes me so angry!! It’s the people the write them that have the issues not the parents!”
Other share their personal views and clearly feel strongly about the topic, “what is wrong with people I kiss my mum my kids and grandkids on the lips.”
