Victoria Beckham is raising her daughter with kindness in mind.

On Sunday, the pop icon and fashion designer, 49, shared a series of photos with her 12-year-old daughter Harper, celebrating Anti Bullying Week on her Instagram. The mother-daughter duo poses for two photos, smiling together. In an added video, Victoria discusses her own bullying story, which she expands upon in her caption.

“BE THE KINDEST IN THE CLASSROOM!” she began her caption. “I’m so proud to raise a strong and caring daughter!”

“Growing up I was bullied a lot at school, and I often tell Harper how important it is to be kind and call out if anyone is ever bullied — especially if there’s ever another little girl on her own in the playground, because that was once her mummy!”

Victoria Beckham Slams ‘Too Posh to Push’ Headlines, Says She Was Told Labor ‘Would Not Be Safe’

“This #AntiBullyingWeek it’s so important not to be silent if someone is alone or being bullied. 💜💜💜 xx Kisses #HarperSeven I love you so much xx,” the mom of four ended her caption.

Victoria shares her four kids — Harper, Cruz, 18, Romeo, 21, and Brooklyn, 24 — with husband David Beckham, 48.

In September, Victoria presented her Spring/Summer 2024 fashion line in Paris and was supported by Harper, Cruz, Brooklyn and husband David, who all sat front row at the show.

Prior to the big event, David got a makeover from Harper in preparation for Victoria’s show, posting the sweet video to his Instagram. Using a makeup brush on her dad’s forehead and cheeks, Harper gives David a touch-up to the tune of a Taylor Swift song.

“My little makeup artist is good & has a great playlist 🎶 @taylorswift … We are on our way mummy @victoriabeckham ❤️,” the proud dad wrote in his caption.

This wasn’t the first time David has let his daughter do his touch-ups. In late July, the athlete shared another Instagram post of Harper doing his makeup.

“Daddy apparently needed a little powder & contouring (not sure what that means but I looked better what ever it was) my little makeup artist @victoriabeckham,” he wrote as the caption of the sweet father-daughter moment.
