A sweet video of Piolo Pascual and his son Iñigo is making rounds in social media.
The video shows Piolo and Iñigo kissing each other’s lips has sparked debate among netizens.
Netizens across the internet have argued whether the action of Piolo and Iñigo was appropriate or not.
Some were saying that the kiss was just a proof that Piolo and Iñigo love each other very much. However, some other believe that the viral video was the confirmation of Piolo’s ‘true’ gender.
Some people in other countries, even in the Philippines, have practiced kissing their child on the lips. Unfortunately, we cannot please everybody as we have different views in our life.
But, according to Sydney psychologist Dr Fiona Martin, kissing your child is normal and healthy. Her interview was published at Daily Mail Australia on 28 August 2015.
“It’s absurd really to think a parent kissing their child could be referred to as too sexual.
“It’s normal and healthy to be affectionate to your children. It’s communicating to your child that you love them.
Dr Martin said there was no psychological effects for a child who has been kissed on the lips by their parents.
“It’s beautiful. Anything that promotes emotional connectivity is good. It’s certainly not inappropriate to kiss your child.” she said.
Furthermore, this was not the first time Piolo and Iñigo showed their affection to each other. Last year, a viral photo of them while hugging each other became a hot topic in social media.
Nonetheless, the father-and-son remained unaffected by these malicious accusations thrown by people.
