IF your teen was dating someone whom you discovered was still breast feeding (as a teen)... adult content

How would you react? Would you feel a need to step in? Would you worry about your teens safety or the safety of that other teen?

Believe it or not this came up in another question... So I wanted to hear from you all!

  • Cite a source that this actually occured and I would probably be more apt to entertain the question.

  • Yeah, believe it or not this came up in another question... and one mom even defended this type of thing... Which is just twisted!

  • WOW! The likelihood of that happening is ridiculously small. So I have no idea what I would do.

  • I would warn my child that the mother could potentially have some major issues. This is well outside the norm in this country.

  • It's a WHAT IF, not a news story or anything... But one of the women on my other question did state that she knows a girl (at 19) who still suckles from her mother for comfort... So just a hypothetical...

  • LOL...well my first reaction is to laugh. I mean I nursed my kids til they were almost 3, but a teenager? Yikes. I think I'd worry about the safety of my own child at that point...something is obviously wrong with the mother/child relationship of the other kid. Creepy.

  • OH thats just not right at all... There is something very strange with that relationship for that to be occuring.
