100% agree. Strong psychological evidence exists showing that children are worse off when a parent introduces multiple, relatively short term dating partners into the picture versus when the parent refrains from involving children in their intimate relationships, as I was reminded earlier this week while taking an online CLE (Continuing Legal Education) course on divorce/custody agreements. And see my previous posts on this forum, wherein I have, at one time or another, called out all of the families on this show for involving the kids in their dating lives. 🙂
My mom is still protective of me, and I'm almost 40 yrs old.... Occasionally, I used to get a bit indignant if I felt she wasn't treating me "adult" enough, and she would tell me that being a mother doesn't just turn itself off when your kid reaches whatever age. But, I guess if you're Brandi, it does, and that age is 17, apparently. Rather selfish, IMHO, and please give me the mom who shares her boyfriend drama - or hell, any drama, for that matter - with her friends/peers, not me. Then again, my mom doesn't have drama, nor is she on a reality tv show, so perhaps she just has better judgment all around than Brandi et al.
