I'm very much an optimist about people. My view of what we know is everyone is happy and the arrangement is working for them. You've obviously got the opposite view based on exactly the same scenario. Probably because I had a similar start to life as her daughter and ya know I'm ok.
Point is there is a massive difference between "one side" saying their parenting choices are their parenting choices and whatever works for them is all that matters, and "the opposing side" saying she's immature, selfish, shouldn't have more children, has deeper issues that need to be looked at, that her child will possibly have psychological issues as a result of this specific choice and that they have made a bad parenting choice. One side is supportive and recognising what works for one family doesn't work for another and the other is jumping to massive conclusions based on one tiny snippet of information about their life.
