How long should you breast feed your children?

I watched an interesting article on breastfeeding today. Here is the link, which claims it is safe for work, but there is a split second of nipple in the film: This woman has three children and a husband. Three of the aforementioned people are being breastfed. Her youngest feeding daughter is 5 years old, the other is 8, and her husband helps himself as well. Ew. Ew. Ewww. She insists that it makes her children have higher IQs, and feel better about themselves. I can understand breastfeeding. I always thought going past 2 years old was pushing it, but 8 is disgusting. When should a mother stop breastfeeding a child? When did you stop?

Hey thats too long a duration for bre*st feeding. I mean how is this possible, three kids not to mention there father too. Eight year old and still bre*st feeded, this is just too much to digest. I think that 2 years is good enough duration after which the child learns to eat and through this food eaten he obtains energy and vital nutrients. I am not saying that you should not bre*st feed your kids, but I think you should also look at the age factor. I mean this is just ridiculous, simply too much. How can she do that?
