This Dad Says: Stop Touching My Baby

Elon James White says he’s glad people think his daughter is adorable, however, he’d prefer it if you don’t touch her without asking.

In his new video, entitled “Dear Strangers, Please Don’t Touch My Kid,” which he released as part of his multimedia project “Daddy Game Proper.” He explains:

“As a loving caring father, I’m asking society, could you stop touching my baby?” he says in the video.

“If you wouldn’t touch a stranger, why do you feel like you should touch a child?” he says, adding that it isn’t sanitary and that you should really ask permission first.

“It’s such a weird thing to me, because I see babies all the time and I don’t think ‘I should touch this child,’” he said to HuffPost Parents. “And after mentioning it to other parents there seemed to be a shared ‘ugh!’ about this. Similar to women having their belly’s touched during pregnancy. Stop touching people, big or small, without permission!”

White is a Dad to an  almost-1-year-old Sidney Joyce White. He ‘s a blogger & vlogger and also tweets about life as a new dad using the hashtag #DGProper, shortened from #DaddyGameProper.

“I grew up without a father so making sure that my own daddy game was in fact, proper was and is very important to me,” he said to HuffPost. “Not only did I want to break the cycle of abandonment, I wanted really jump into fatherhood.”
