Sanity Check Needed

I don't have children but I fear one of my friends is being overly protective of her son. He's the only child she's likely to have and I get that he's extremely important to her. That being given, I have a question. Just in case parenthood makes a difference, I have divided the question, the first set of answers is for parents, the second for non-parents.

Edited after the first two responses:
What I'm looking for is the age at which a normal, healthy child should no longer have a baby monitor turned on in his/her bedroom. If never is a choice, feel free to leave a comment. I'll tally those by hand, later.

Edited again:
Upon further reflection, the question I want answered is "By what age should a baby monitor be removed from a child's room because if it isn't I will think the parent is a nut."
