Max age for suppository assistance and sleeping in parent's bed

Patient

Q: I have two questions:

1. What is the maximum age that a child should be sleeping in their parent's bed? I know a mom that has son that is 2 months from 13 years old and he's just now having these boundaries set, but still on occasion sleeps in mom's bed. She is going through a divorce, but this seems seriously inappropriate. ?

2. What is the maximum age that a child should have their mother assist with a suppository for anti-nausea?
Again, almost 13 years old seems inappropriate.

Her son has been coddled, but he is not mentally incapable. I think mom may sees this "almost teem" as still being her baby or something. I have scoured the internet to and couldn't find these answers. Any advice would be wonderful.

Thank you,

Concerned Boyfriend
