A mom who is in the process of "weaning" her son off of hugs was livid when she found out he was getting his fix from his teacher. The nine-year-old has been benefiting from a warm embrace, and the mom wants to know if she's a jerk for being angry.

She wrote on "Am I The A**hole?":

My son is about 9 and a half years old. I used to hug him all the time, and whenever he was even slightly upset, he would come to me to soothe him. He became so dependent on me, he had trouble controlling his own emotions, to the point he still had tantrums like a toddler (they haven't fully stopped yet), so I started to wean him off hugs.

I recently found out that he had been getting hugs from his teacher. Not only is this really weird, but it's literally stunting his emotional growth. When I confronted her, she blew up and lectured me on how 9 year olds "need" hugs. I think that's complete bullsh*t. I stopped being actively hugged at 6, and most 9 year olds don't have the same emotional issues my son does.
