The woman posted the question anonymously on Q&A website Quora , seemingly begging other parents for advice on whether she should stop. She wrote: "Is it wrong for me (a mother) to sleep naked with my 16 year old son?"
But if she was seeking reassurance, she didn't find it there.
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 man, Christopher Richards, tried to give her the benefit of 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).
