In this rare and exclusive interview, we finally get to talk to a toddler stalker and hear what he has to say about his mother’s accusations!
TS: What mom calls her kid a toddler stalker? I mean seriously! Isn’t that just a bit inappropriate. I think she needs to google other appropriate parenting terms for her first born?
Reporter: Your mother says she sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night and finds you hovering over her face, watching her breath?
TS: Well, that just makes it sound all creepy! Can’t a boy watch his mom? Look, sometimes I like a little cuddle at night. Is there anything wrong with that?!
Reporter: Your mother says during her day you follow her around and watch her every move?
TS: I will admit, I watch her. I follow her. I don’t let that woman out of my sight! I have seen her try and sneak away to do the laundry or to make a phone call. We can’t have that. I need her complete focus and attention. She thinks I don’t notice when she’s backing away from me quietly moving into the other room – I notice.
Reporter: She says you don’t even let her have friends? When she’s on the phone you scream and shout and make her get off. When she takes you to go over to her friend’s house, you don’t leave her side?
TS: Some might see that as a bit excessive, but look, she’s my mom – not theirs. People just need to back away from my momma. I may need her. What if I want a drink? She needs to be available – that’s all. I don’t like her talking to other people. What do they have that I don’t? She only needs me.
Reporter: She says you won’t even let her go into the bathroom alone?
TS: Did she tell you she goes alone anyway?! Even though I tell her not to. Even though I cry and scream. I try and reach her under the door. Sometimes I can see her toes through the crack of the door. I know she’s in there.
Reporter: She says you won’t even let her shower alone – is that true too?!
TS: Look, I am a conservationist. Should we waste all that water. I need to be clean too. Doesn’t it make sense that we should just shower together. I am looking out for the world here people! How about a little support!
Reporter: Your mom says when she tries to escape – I mean go out – you sabotage this and prevent her from leaving?
TS: You make it out like she’s a prisoner in her own home. That’s ridiculous. Do I like my mom’s company – yes. Do I prefer she stay with me – yes. Do I feel like she has no business ever leaving me – of course. Is that wrong – I don’t think so. She thinks she can give me a picture of her and a kiss in both my hands and I will be okay without her. I don’t think so lady!
Reporter: Well, that’s all the time we have for today. Stay tuned for part 2 next week, when we discuss what interventions to take to help your toddler stalker.
