A MOTHER has been slammed for repeatedly kissing her young daughter on the lips on a train in a TikTok video.
But others have rushed to defend her after the clip went viral and sparked a debate whether or not the smooches were appropriate.
The video shows the small child standing on a Sydney train seat leaning over its back towards her mum.
The mother holds on to her daughters hands while the pair kiss repeatedly for eight seconds with their eyes closed.
The video is accompanied with “romantic” music of a woman singing and was posted with several hashtags including “kids”, “kiss”, “kisstime” and “mother daughter bond”.
Some social media users were shocked by the overload of public affection.
One wrote: “Serious question, why did you kiss your kid like that?
“That doesn’t make any sense to me and I would like to hear your reasoning.”
Another added: “Why are you making out with your child on a train? Why?”
While a third said: “Do not kiss your child like that.”
However other parents came to the defense of the mother
One said: “She isn’t even kissing her kid.
“She is just standing there and that’s her child doing it all,’ one wrote in defense of the mother.
The mother has now turned the comments off on the video after receiving such negative comments.
