  • I find it a bit odd, something that should be done by her husband or SO.

  • My dad has a bad back and can't reach his feet. So yes, my sis does it for him. But never for punishment. That part is ridiculous.

  • How old? 4 not weird, the punishment part yes, 14 creepy and wrong--maybe she could have his friends watch to emasculate him even further, I would totally say something, if she is the kind that is open, if not, send her a letter with no signature?

  • my son is four years old and he will come and rub my feet for me, he sees my man rubbing my feet for me so he does what his daddy does. Know making your kid rub you feet as a punishment is just wrong

  • That is a weird punishment, maybe not bad but just very odd. I don't even have my husband do that, much less my son.

  • As a punishment - that's definitely odd. As a normal thing, no I don't think it's weird. I had a bone displace in my right foot some years ago and being a single mom - trust me I begged them, even offered to pay them to rub my foot. But we're a massage happy family. (not laying on beds with a towel or anything) but shoulder rubs were very common, foot rubs were common too. My youngest had flat feet and when he was in ROTC his feet hurt really badly, I would rub them when he got out of the shower - he'd fall asleep on the couch with me doing that.
    If you can't have your family rub your foot when it hurts then who you gonna get?
