A mother who says she still sleeps naked next to her 16-year-old son has posted a question to other parents online asking whether it’s OK.
The woman posted the question anonymously on Q&A website Quora , She wrote: “Is it wrong for me (a mother) to sleep naked with my 16 year old son?”
The Mirror reports, more than one person questioned why she felt the need to sleep next to her teenage son at all, let alone why she would do it naked.
One commenter tried to give her the benefit of the doubt and wondered whether he had medical issues which call for her to sleep in the same bed as him.
He wrote: “The initial reaction is, WHY do you need to sleep in the same bed with your 16 year old son in YOUR home, does he have medical issues?
“Do you only have one bedroom in the apartment? If that is the case then you should be in single beds, albeit it the same room. Really from the age of 10 a child should have their own bed, ideally bedroom and not sleeping with their parent(s).
“The only exception I would make to that is if the child is unwell and it is safer to have them sleep with you so that if an emergency arises you can move quicker.”
“As for the nudity element, why are you not wearing night attire? I do not think that it is appropriate for either of you to be naked in the same bed; certainly it does appear to have over-tones of incest.”
Some even wondered whether it was posted by a troll who had made the whole thing up.
“I hope you’re just a troll. If you’re not, your kid is on the road to being even more screwed up than I am, and that’s really saying something.”
