cause she wanted to know other peoples opinions? she can have her own opinion thats why she stated it in d&d

The same reason they stop every other behavior. They become developmentally ready.
I know of a woman who used to breast feed her 8 year old son in front of his friends and in shopping centers. He refused nearly all foods and she used to both co-sleep and co-bathe with him ... he's now 13 and as far as I know she continues to do all of the above. He wasn't even potty trained until he was 9 and the school insisted. The school even had him tested for mental/developmental issues, and everything came back fine. SO's family (she's friends of his family) think she's strange and bordering on abusive ... I'm just not sure.

damn! well that was kinda what i meant, would you consider it abusive to breastfeed a teenager/adult? lol thats crazy though!

I would consider what she is doing mental/emotional abuse. with everything she is doing. Like some dang control issue.

thats what i was thinking to but if there a teenager arent they making there own decisions? lol

you dont think a pre-teen bathing with his mom is unhealthy?
Quoting Carissa Biron:" thats what i was thinking to but if there a teenager arent they making there own decisions? lol"
exactly. I think she has mentally/ emotionally damaged him. The mother has issues. Its everything she is doing. Sorry but co-bathing with a teenage boy? If the roles were reversed and the father was co-bathing with his daughter, he would be labled a child molester.
I don't particularly CARE if an older kid is breastfeeding if they still want it, but I'd be a liar if I sad I wouldn't be a bit uncomfortable if I saw somebody doing that in public with an older kid. I would never say anything to discourage it or make them feel weird, but for some reason I would feel awkward. But by all means, if the child wants the BM, give it to them if you want to, can't hurt! I think it just seems strange because it's so uncommon.
I don't have a problem with it. My daughter will be two next month and I'm still breastfeeding. She has no interest in weaning. My personal limit is three (I think, lol), but it's not really my business if someone chooses to nurse longer.
