Lam2013 asks:

When is a boy to old to sit on his father's lap?

I was at a gathering last night at my boyfriends house, we were all sitting by the fire pit when his 14 year old son came out and sat on his father's lap. His father reached around a hugged him and was very content with his kid sitting on his lap. Dad was rubbing his kids back and slouched down in the chair to get comfy. Kept patting him on the back, even sighed he was so elated that his son was sitting on his lap.

Sad to say I was very uncomfortable with this.

In my mind a 14 year old boy should be either sitting next to his father or not at all.

Where is the cut off on this subject?
