Peeling paint?

We recently moved into a new house which we had plastered and painted. My son had managed to scrape some of the paint off and now is able to peel the paint off quite easily. The peeled paint has the texture of dried tissue paper, its not hard but soft and stretchy. I could peel off the whole wall with just my hands. Can someone please tell me why this is?

It hasn’t adhered to the paint underneath maybe paint under neath is of the washable or scrubbable type and is waterproof , I’ve come across this before

The paint wasn’t diluted properly or not at all by the sounds of it so hasn’t soaked into the plaster

If it was newly painted, it could be that the wrong primer was used, or that the plaster was not completely dry when it was painted.
