Tom Brady, the five-time Super Bowl champion, is on his way to try to win his sixth championship this Sunday.  However, he’s going into this Super Bowl weekend with some heat that is surrounding the football star.

He raised eyebrows this week when footage from a documentary called “Tom vs. Time” was released, and the 40-year-old NFL champ is being criticized for being too affectionate with his son. With some critics calling the kiss, ‘too long.’

In the scene, Brady’s 11-year-old son Jack walks into a room where the quarterback is getting a massage. His son asks if he can check his fantasy football stats. Jack asks, “Oh hello. I was wondering if I could check my fantasy team?”

Brady replies to his son’s question with a question of his own, “What do I get?” Jack leans over and gives his father a peck on the lips. The massage therapist then interjects into the conversation and says, “You know Jack, everything comes with a cost, bud.” The Patriot star then says to his son, “That was like a peck.”

Brady’s son returns to give his father another kiss, but this time longer which provoked viewers to tweet comments like, “very disturbing” and “uncomfortably long.”

Lyss Stern, a lifestyle and parenting expert, comments on the footage from the documentary, “If you kiss your kids too much, it’s the wrong thing. If you kiss your kids too little, it’s the wrong thing. If you hug too much- people need to back off and stop parent shaming,” Stern says.

Carolyn Meyer-Wartels, a clinical social worker and parenting expert offers her professional opinion, “I don’t think affection should ever be tied with a favor. You don’t do anything with your body because someone else is insisting you do it in order for you to get what you want.” She goes on to say even if it is your mom or dad.

People were asked what their take was on the kiss Tom shared with his son Jack. One viewer thought, “Too long, like romantic wrong.” While another viewer said, “I think at a certain age it’s like OK you can kiss them on the cheek; you can giv em a hug. But not in the mouth and not for too long.”

But one viewer thinks everyone needs to relax, “I kiss my son on his lips. I have since day one. I would have no problem with my son kissing me like that.”

So what’s your take on it? Is Tom Brady just an overly affectionate father and viewers aren’t used to seeing this side of the quarterback? Or has he gone out of bounds?

  1. People love differently- Some parents love by kissing their kids and others love their children by beating or starving them. Personally, and I’m NOT a Brady fan, I don’t see the harm.

  2. REGARDING THE KISS———-I THINK IT WAS FINE———–LATER WHEN HIS SON IS A TEEN AGER IT WILL NO DOUBT CHANGE TO A PECK ON THE CHEEK AND A LOT OF HUGS. GIVE THE KID A BREAK AND STOP BEING SO JUDGEMENTAL

  3. I think it was fine too. We don’t need to judge so harshly especially in light of the fact of his wife is Brazilian. The cultural standards are much different and perhaps Tom has picked up some of the mannerisms of his wife. Interesting nonetheless.

  4. They’re father and son, granted at this boy’s age it shouldn’t be happening anymore, but if he’s comfortable kissing his dad like that then who are we to judge? he,s a lucky boy his father is in his life, don’t be ALARMED the boy will stop on his own the first time his dad try to do in front of his girlfriend\boys of his age, hell he may stopped now with the big deal you dirty mined have made over it, kissing his dad is what he knows he’s been doing from birth. if his dad was doing more than kissing him on his lips, then there would be cause for alarm, so people please STOP making a mountain out of an anthill.
