Parents urged not to force children to kiss relatives

Parents who force their sons and daughters to give granny a peck on the cheek may be doing them harm, it's being claimed.

The Sex Education Forum says it will help them learn about consent and how to resist unwanted sexual advances later in life.

An article in its magazine says intervening may be awkward but necessary to teach children to follow their instincts. Norman Wells is a Christian and heads up the charity Family Education Trust.

He tells Premier he's shocked this advice has been published:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
