Dan Osborne's Kiss Picture Is Called 'Inappropriate' By Internet Troll
There have always been very divergent views on the issue of kissing children on the lips. Many parents consider it a harmless action. For them, it is just another way of showing affection. However, some other people say it is not an advisable practice, especially for older kids.
American psychologist Charlotte Reznick says that the lips are an erogenous zone, and children may get confused when kissed on the lips. She says they could mistake the action as a romantic gesture.
Ella Selina turns 3
Dan Osborne is a father of two. His first son Teddy is from a previous relationship with Meghan Tomlin. Ella Selina is Dan’s daughter with wife Jacqueline Jossa.
Ella just turned 3 recently, and Dan shared these cute photos of him and his daughter at her birthday party.
The cute toddler looked very happy, and it seems like she had a lot of fun with her family.
Dan Osborne’s “inappropriate” photo
The day was not all rosy. A certain internet troll decided to insult Dan. This person said the picture was “inappropriate”.
Fans of the star were quick to react to the internet troll. Not long after, the original comment was taken down, but many fans continued to speak against it.
I guess you never got a kiss off your dad when you was younger? Nothing inappropriate about this picture. At least she won't grow up with daddy issues.
Other parents kiss their children
Dan is not the only celebrity parent who kisses his children on the lips. Retired footballer David Beckham defended kissing his daughter on the lips last year when some of his followers were raising dust.
It’s how I was brought up and Victoria, and it’s how we are with our children.
Quarterback Tom Brady also got harassed for kissing his son while receiving a massage early this year.

In conclusion, family therapist Paul Hawkmaier had this to say:
It is important that parents adhere to certain boundaries in communicating with children. If we consider a kiss on the lips as a way of expressing affection, then there is nothing unacceptable in this gesture.
