This is the ghost of feen speaking WooOOOooOOO.

Do you think some women take their co-dependency issues out on their children ?

Theres loving your kids and theres obsessing, often to the detriment of the childs development .

When does it cross the line to obsession and is it ever healthy ?

When they make excuses about why their kid has everything. Because they can't say no in case their kid hates them.

Absolutely, both of my ex's mothers were like this with their sons and it was creepy.

My fiance's mother, is more his child than his mother. It puts an enormous amount of pressure on him. It is sad that she seems to only contact him when she needs him to do something for her and vanishes when she is asked to be a responsible adult.

With my ex's, I'm not sure they will ever be able to get out of the shadow of their mother's oppressive presence in their lives. One of my ex's will not ever consider having children or getting married because it would please his mother and that is something he, never wants to do. He would never be around her if it wasn't for her special knack at guilting him by alluding to either being ill or close to dying every third day.
