Moms of tall/big sons...

Do you ever kind of feel like they're your bodyguards when you're out with them? My 16 year old son is about 6'4" and I honestly feel very safe and protected around him.

Yes I do. My 19 year old is 6'3 and always stands beside me. My other 2 boys will hopefully be just as big.

I think age has a lot to do with it. My son has always been tall, but it wasn't until he was older and more mature that I felt he could legitimately protect me if needed. I think you'll feel the same way about your son when he gets a little older and taller. ;)

Not yet, if ever. We'll see. I'm 5'10. My 9 year old is already 5'2. He'll be towering over me soon enough lol

My son is 10 and a bit above average height. But he is going to get taller and might be my bodyguard one day. I am 6'4, my husband is 6'10 and I already have my oldest daughter who is 6'5.

My 2 1/2 year old is super tall, but he doesn't make me feel safe 😂

My son has grown six or seven inches in the last year.  He's almost 5'7 but still only weighs about 107 lbs.  So, not yet. LOL

Maybe I'm odd - but I've never felt like I needed a bodyguard.  I've always felt that I could protect myself.

Wow, that's quite a growth spurt. How old is he?
