    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Although not every night, my boyfriends 14 year old granddaughter who he is raising, asks for him to wake her when he goes to bed so that she can come sleep in the same bed. What would create her need to sleep with him - nothing appears to be weird, no inappropriate behavior and even a rolled up blanket is placed in the middle of the king size bed as a separation .. but why ? It has happened off and on for the past few years but it seems to be more so now that she is a teenager.

    Red flag!!

    Something inappropriate may or may not be going on - - but still this is not ok.

    Enabling this type of dependance is certainly not healthy for either one of them.
