Preteen lactivist!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just have to brag a bit about my oldest son here...

So, 2 girls from my 12y old son's classroom were hanging out at our house. One of them noticed "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" near the computer. (I'm a Leader, and I regularly write support e-mails.)
Classmate to my son, refering to the front picture in a mocking tone: "Eeeeew, K., did you know that little boys suck from women's breasts?!"

His answer: "Well, duh, sure I knew. (... with this voice: ) You know, my mom is a Leader, and she probably spends at least an hour a day to help women who are breastfeeding their babies. That's something she's really committed to. Besides raising her children, that is."

The mentioned classmate had a somewhat surprised expression on her face.

You never know where it'll rub off, do you!

Good for him!!!

My mom is a Leader, too, and so our house was full of nursing artwork, posters, books, etc. I remember that my brothers were absolutely mortified when their friends noticed, especially around that age.

I'm really impressed by your kid! That takes a lot of self confidence.
