No kiss of kind­ness

WhILE the photo of David Beck­ham kiss­ing his daugh­ter harper is in­no­cent (Mail), I don’t think it is ever right to kiss a child on the lips.

grow­ing up, my dad in­sisted on kiss­ing me on the lips. When I tried to tell my mum it made me feel un­com­fort­able, she told me not to be silly be­cause he didn’t mean any­thing by it. But it con­tin­ued un­til I was 17.

I can still re­call the mor­ti­fi­ca­tion and fear that kept me rooted to the spot as I en­dured his af­fec­tion.
