Joanne joined us live on the air today. Her son had several friends over for a sleepover. One of the boys got scared in the middle of the night and came to her bedroom looking for comfort. Instead, he walked into an X-rated scene. The boy didn't knock before entering the bedroom, and saw her and her husband having relations. They tried to play it off as if nothing happened, but they got an angry call from the boy's mom the next day. She was mad that they exposed her son to relations and was also upset that she wasn't called right away. She also wants Joanne to call the other parents to let them know what happened. Joanne wants to know, how can she minimize the fallout from this?
Slacker said he had no idea what he would do. As a parent, he said it is his house and he can do what he wants. Steve, not having any kids, thought that parents should refrain from relations while the kids are in the house. Slacker says that when you have kids, you grab any opportunity you get. Slacker also said that if he found out from his son that he saw a friend's parents having relations, instead of hearing it directly from the parent, he would be upset.
I think the other mother is being absolutely ridiculous. It's not like Joanne and her husband were getting dirty on the kitchen table, they were in the privacy of their own bedroom. While I'm not sure that I could have relations with a bunch of kids in the house, I think that the mom needs to have a talk with her own kid. I understand that kids get scared, but he also has to realize that he is in someone else's home and needs to respect their privacy.
Do you think Joanne and her husband were being irresponsible? What should she do now?
