When this story first came to Mamamia, we all reeled, and you probably will too. It is raw and graphic in parts and we thought long and hard about whether to edit the more disturbing elements out.

Bravo to men who are willing to simply be upstanding adults when our culture makes it clear that only weirdos are interested in kids other than their own. Mom in the second story is a control freak, and her son just happens to an available person to control. I think a lot of bubble wrapping is about control, and kids are just the unfortunate victims.
