How old is too old for a child to still sleep with a parent of the opposite sex?

Would a 12 year old boy still sleeping with his mother skeeve you out? How about the opposite? A 12 year old girl sleeping with her father?

Are there any guidelines about this?

The reason I'm asking is I know someone like this, and it seems a bit too old. But, maybe I'm wrong?

birth is too old
put that kid in a crib bed, a toddler bed, a twin bed and its very own bed
never once in life should a child sleep with the mother or father or both
on occasion if the child is sick or scared or under special circumstances if the child cant sleep in its own bed
but a child should not start out sleeping with the parent, it should be taught from birth that it sleeps alone.

There is nothing wrong with a child sleeping with their parents. It is up to each individual family. However, I would think that a child of 12 would want to sleep in their own bed. I guess you are saying that a child of the opposite sex is sleeping with a single parent? I would not be comfortabe doing that at that prepubescent age. It just gives the appearance of impropriety and leaves room for gossiping suspicions that I would want to avoid.

you are so wrong that you cannot even see the light of how wrong you are from where you are!!!
a child should never ever ever sleep with a parent, you will be raising a scared sniveling mammas boy!!!
parents get on facebook and talk about what a hard time they have breaking the child from sleeping in their bed, well, duh, if you dont let it start in the first place they will never know anything but their own bed!!

You are entitled to your opinion. I just happen to disagree.

It is very clear that none of you are parents. And if so I feel sorry for your child. As a parent it is my job to protect and love my child. My seven year old sleeps in his own bed but there have been times that he had a bad dream or was sick and came and wanted to sleep with his dad and I. There is NOTHING WRONG with this. I want my child to feel safe and know that I'm always there for him. And that doesn't make a child a crybaby or any other harsh saying you come up with. That's whats wrong with the world parents bringing children in to the world and throwing them off on everybody and not showing them any attention.

do you people read anything before you comment????
of course there is nothing wrong with a parent protecting a child from a bad dream, etc.
but for a child to automatically crawl into his parents bed, without any question, is just wrong.
this practice needs to be stopped and the child needs to be placed in their own bed from birth and allow them to grow up knowing that sleeping with mom and dad is not common practice.
however, if you allow the child to stay in your bed on nights when he is scared, he will learn to use that as an excuse.
i know a single woman with a 3 year old son and he sleeps with her as if its normal and expected.
she doesnt even feel as if she needs to start breaking him from the practice.
what happens when the child becomes older?
which one is going to want to sleep alone the mother or the child?
probably the mothers, for they do not want their children to grow up and gain independence!!!

My kids only slept in our bed when they were very young, and only when they were sick or scared. Not that I minded, but my kids were just a little more independent. My son is the youngest, and until he was 5, his bed was in our room, because he has night terrors so often. He sleeps in his own room now, but only when his sisters are home. His room is upstairs, along with the girls', and the master is downstairs. Guess he gets a little insecure being the only one up there.
But, I've always thought that he had a sixth sense. He had an imaginary friend when he was younger. Joey was his name. He said that he burned up in a fire. I could hear him talking to him sometimes. Gave me the willies.

You get on a bunch of topics and you rant about how other people raise their kids. My goodness! Do you have a life? How about minding your own business for a change. And before you start your nonsense with me, I don't have kids.

oh you are married but barren, so soon your husband will begin to want children and he will look at your wide load ass and realize what a huge ass mistake hes made.
he will then marry a young hotter woman who can have his children and you will grow old and alone with 34 cats and a hairy upper lip.

Lmfao...you're just jealous of married women cause your always the brides maid, right?? Troll!!!
you are just jealous of single women arent you, because you are always stuck at home on weekends with fat daddy and your brood of mouth breathers, while all the single ladies go out and have fun.
for example, going to bristol to have some fun, going to cootie browns or maybe red barn campground, dance the night away....cant go out and have that kind of fun with the hot boys in pickup trucks and drag big fat bubba and little fat sissy chubbs along with you.
but im sure you will have fun too, watching your husband mowing the grass and pumicing your corns. make sure your kids dont see a ghost, boooooo!!!!

Just because I'm married b!tch doesn't mean that I'm not sexy. I work out, and I OWN a tanning bed. My life didn't end..I just have someone to share it with. You're so fu cking jealous that you view all married women as these fat asses who repulse their husbands. News flash moron...they choose us..and chose to spend the rest of their lives with us!! They love being with us..we have their rings, that they put on our fingers.
You get so worked up and defensive because you know that I'm telling the truth. Your fat ass just can't win a mans heart, and you can't stand others enjoying the life you want. Like I said before, I can be single whenever I want. You, on the other hand, can't. And it drives you insane.
You will never be happy because you're so fu cking full of yourself. Grow up b!tch!! Learn how to keep your legs closed before you spread any more diseases, as I'm sure that you have. Just exactly how many partners have you had?? Too many to count!!! Lmfao...they USE you. That's probably why you've slept with so many married ones...but only the ones whose wives wouldn't give it up...they gotta get it somewhere...but I believe that a hole in the wall would be better!!

Wow grow up! Men would just use your tan self for a piece of carp smelling, lips dragging ground, piece o p---u--SS--y. Then they'd go back to their fat wives.

Now go wash the cheese off of that old snatch, I can smell that musty thank from over here. Or maybe it's the smell of your chin where your dads nuts hung as u sucked him off.
