  • I was going to say 5 as well. I certainly wouldn't be bathing the 10 yr old with the 8 yr old. At 10 he should be able to bath himself without any help.

  • At those ages they should be able to shower on their own.

  • Hell, tntmom, at 8 years old, he should be able to bathe himself!

    My 7 and 8 year olds we stopped last year and told them to start taking separate SHOWERS instead of baths.

  • Why can't they wash themselves?
    I'm sure there's got to be a point when one needs a shower and the other doesn't? (After sports, an illness, etc)

  • I agree Hopeandglory but if the mother is still bathing them at this point she would probably not even consider that the 8 yr old is old enough so I thought I would shoot for the 10 yr old lol

  • LOL, just got rid of my company, I might have a shot at making my 44 number?
    Never, they should bathe with one another until they leave for college, then the older one can come back on the weekends and shower with his brother.

  • By this age they should be able to shower alone unless there is a drought.
