First of all, people aren`t just "assuming" something because they`re feeling uncomfortable. The children are ALREADY showing signs of being mentally damaged. Their obsession with their mother`s breasts. The little 8 year old girl treats it like it`s a narcotic or something. They draw pictures of it, give it names, talk to it, and not to mention talk ABOUT it. If you don`t think there`s something wrong with that, then you might have some serious problems yourself.
Couldn`t watch anymore.
That sh*t has been dragged. Your move, muchango...
breastfeeding is a natural thing tht is healthy for children and it isn`t harming them in anyway. if you are diusgusted by this or think it`s wrong then you`re just a sad sad person and hopefully you don`t have children because you`re a very unfeeling individual.
If this was the case why was so much blood shed over god? Why do christians still act out against gays? Why do christians practice spreading around religious propaganda? Religion is a big business with no taxes. The soul reason why we have so much hatred in our society. Stop being so naive and think for yourself.
The most loving people in this world don`t believe in a one religion, or one at all for that matter. You can`t deny history, or well I guess you can since christians like to deny anything against what the believe in. With not one bit of solid proof to back it.
Breasts are NOT sexual to a child unless someone teaches them that they are. To a breastfed child breasts are food and comfort and love. In fact, the last feedings to go for us other than going to sleep were "boo-boo" feedings, if he got hurt it made him feel better faster than anything else ever did.
Anyone who thinks breast feeding ones child is gross needs to get their mind out of the gutter.
look at her chow down! jesus...
- Disturbing to me, seeing this woman breastfeed her much-too-old children.- Disturbing that it has been shown on TV- Disturbing that she let`s her children decide when to stop (do the also decidee when to go to bed, og when to behave badly or when to trash the house etc?)- Disturbing that they are so dependant on the breasts..
All in all.. DISTURBING!!
Allright - one topic at a time.1. Breastfeeding is neither disgusting or sexual. It is normal and perfectly natural up till around the age of three. Eight is...just plain strange.2. This has nothing to do with this families religious beliefs. *I* am not Christian and I have no intents of slinging mud on the religion just because of one family`s extremely strange behaviors. The fighting on this level needs to stop. Shame on you.
How about the immense teasing that your child will encounter in school? Even if they decide to stop breastfeeding after they`re teased, this is something that will follow your child around for many years.
Or what happens if your child decides not to stop breastfeeding? Kid goes to college and gets freaked out because something they always had and relied on is no longer there. Or, heaven forbid, the child decides not to go to college because they won`t be able to breastfeed.
This could have some awful impacts in the kid`s life. Cut the cord already!
When the girls were painting pictures of their mother`s breasts, didn`t the mom say her nipples weren`t that long? Ummm, yeah - towards the end you can see how long they are - it could poke someone`s eye out!
Settle for this- Religion is all fine and dandy up until it is used to harm others. Extremists are wrong, but so long as one person`s belief does not harm another person in any way, let`s learn some tolerance.
*laughs* You have anger management issues. :-D
Anyway, I never said that. If you inferred correctly I was saying that they WERE in fact Christians and being theists in the first place made them more susceptible to have strange customs and to have a belief in something despite evidence to the contrary (e.g., that breastfeeding children is healthy despite its very possible negative effects in the long run).
Also, Muslims and Christians and other theists are all equally deluded regardless of how extreme they go in practices for their faith.
look at the size of that nipple!
For young toddlers, though, breastfeeding is very healthy and natural. Not for 5 and 8-year-olds, though. 3 is understandable, but that`s about where it should be cut off.
you are a hypocrite. Christianity is about love, understanding and forgiveness, you are most certainly not on the straight path.
And speaking of ignorant morons... hasn`t anyone heard of BREAST PUMPS? Anyone can argue that breast milk provides the best nutrition for kids, but that doesn`t mean the kid has to be sucking directly on their mum`s breasts. And did you see that they drew their mom completely naked in their drawings? If she breastfeeds them naked too, social services might want to step in after all.
Hooray for not making sense.
Honestly, its best not to assume something because you get an uncomfortable feeling.
Bet she wouldn`t believe that if her children were boys. ;-)
But it is recommended to only do this for two years until the children can eat solid foods. Yes, it is the best nourishment - but as newborns we are most susceptible to germs attacking us because our immune systems are not mature, so we need the antibodies the mother`s milk provides until we have a higher effective immune response as we get older - CERTAINLY by age 8 that has occurred.
The mother probably has letting go issues and is being irresponsible having CHILDREN make such a decision of when to stop breast feeding.
And those poor children don`t know any better - I`m sure this, erm, extended practice provides a closer bond/relationship between the mother and her two children, but this only strengthens the idea that they will have great difficulty leaving her behind - and the comfort breastfeeding provides - as they venture out into adult-hood. This could very well result in mental problems...
that was the freakiest part.eughhhh yuck
This is rather....odd. I think the woman should show some strength and cut them off. That`s one part of being a parent, you gotta know when to put your foot down! So many people don`t know that nowadays and that`s why you have babies screaming in your ear when at the grocery store because they want some candy or something...
I`d be really interested to know what kind of people they are when they grow up.
and if its better than am million mangoes, why doesnt that girl still breastfeed? huhh? do you have a million and one mangoes, little girl?
wtf am i watching!?!?
Now, three and up (especially 8!) is damaging for the child mentally and socially and is simply the greediness of the Mother, wanting to keep her kids as babies, for as long as possible.
I think it is akin to child abuse and she should have her kids taken away before too much damage is done (If it`s not already too late...).
And her nipples are HUGE.
Those kids seemed to think that people should breastfeed for their entire life, that`s not really a good idea, is it?And not to mention that those girls were WAY too obsessed with their mom`s boobs. I mean, she even said that they touched them and talked to them, they memorized every detail of her breasts, drawing pictures and giving them names... that is just really bad. Them getting nutrients is one thing (not to mention that they could get every single mineral and nutrient they need in regular foods) but to have them so obsessed over her breasts... that`s just unhealthy.
Plus I have to tend to this boner now!
Goddamnit IAB, I`m pissed!
i like to see people challenge the norm with ther own life but win you are raising children you shouldnt do things that will potentially make them a out cast for the rest of ther life. i just see a mother who cant let go. one of you freaky cat lovers mail her a kitten or something.
not so she can breast feed it, to give her something to do other then damaging other people with her obsession.
letting young kids make all the decisions in ther life creates the worst kind of hippies.
um...yeah, i think that if my children adored my breasts i would feel very honored.
but that would hurt so bad!
I believe you are meant to raise people, not children. You`re only a child for maybe 13-14 years tops? Although some ppl try well into their 20`s and 30`s...Most people will be adults for 50-60 years or more.
That woman said something about `this country is repressed`, or whatever...no, it is about letting go of your babies and letting them out in the world. As for letting the child decide when to stop...yeah let your kids make all their own decisions and they`ll eat nothing but junk food.
Having your kids constantly think about them Creepy.
