OK this article that my darling husband sent to me today has a total YUCK factor for me and I wanted to see how others reacted to it. This mother is advertising for a girlfriend for her adopted son that has Down syndrome. She wants him to enjoy sex since other young adults are.
I feel like she should be teaching him to have mature loving relationships and not be so concerned about the physical act of sex. As a mom I want both of my boys to understand love and have healthy relationships. It is my job to teach them about healthy relationships and how to be safe and what all of the different aspects to a relationship are. Not knowing this young man I don't know what his emotional maturity is but it is very likely that he can't even truly understand all the pieces to a relationship that lead it to becoming sexual. There is so much more involved that I just want to shake this lady.
Anyway I'll get off my soapbox but I want to hear what everyone else things of this. Good - bad or otherwise I think it will be interesting to hear what your thoughts are.
