sitting on dad's lap

My 10 year old almost 11 year old stepdaughter likes to sit on her dad's lap. I don't know if it's just me but I find that to be inappropriate at that age...? We have a bio daughter together but she is only 3 months right now...I wouldn't want her sitting on her dad's lap at that age. Just curious what other mom's think about this?

I personally don't think its inappropriate. I'm pretty sure I still did at that age, as well as on my grandfathers lap. JMO

I dont see anything wrong with it... at least she has a daddy that she can go to and sit with and feel loved, i actually find myself envying people that had that... no one ever loved me that much, let it be shes still a little girl, now if she was 18 graduating high school climbing in her dads lap or crawling into bed with him that would be a different story

I'm 27 years old, I still sit on my Dad's lap sometimes. It's not sexual. What's the problem with it?

My daughter is 10, and cuddles with her Dad all the time. I don't think there  is anything inappropriate with it at all. She may be feeling a little insecure about the new baby. Why does this bother you? Please don't take offense, but it sort of seems like you are jealous of her sitting on her Dad's lap.

I'm 24 and I sit on my dad's lap. I also cuddle in the bed with him I'm not feeling well. I don't find it inappropriate at all. My daughter is almost 8 years old and she loves to snuggle with her daddy.

I don't see the big deal in it at all . That is her father. if I had a good dad I am sure I would have sat on his lap. My niece sits on her dads lap and she is almost 12

I used to sit on my Dad's lap all the time, throughout my teens, too.  I miss my father terribly, if he was still around, I'd sit on his lap and give him a huge hug. (I'm 27 now) I wouldn't think twice about it.

If it's her bio dad's lap, then I don't see a problem with it. If it was a step-dad, that would be weird. I have an 11 y.o. SD, and SOMETIMES she sits on SO's lap. Not all the time, but every once in a while...

I don't think there is anything wrong with that at all. There are tons of pictures of us sitting on my stepdad's lap giving him a hug or just being silly, and we were 10, 15, even 20 years old. What I think is "inappropriate" is that someone would find anything sexual about that. All of these "is this innappropriate for a father/daughter to do" posts make me ill. Who just sits around and thinks of this kind of stuff?
