My son is 2 1/2 and has always showered with me. My husband works most of the day and if it wasn't for him showering with me I would never get a shower! He's too young to trust to run around the house by himself while I'm in alone, so I just sit him down in the shower too and he plays with his toys. He doesn't ever pay any attention to me or anything, so I've never felt weird about it, but I mentioned something about it to a family member awhile back not thinking anything of it and they acted like I was a weirdo or something. Now I'm wondering if he is too old? I just assumed when he started questioning or pointing things out that that would be the time to stop and since he never has it still wasn't a big deal. He showers with his Daddy on the weekends when he's home and never mentions anything then either, so I don't even think he pays attention to the difference at all.

It's really up to you. I've never showered with my kids because I feel like shower time is "me time". I usually shower when the boys are taking a nap. Do what works for your family. My boys take baths at night as part of their bed time routine so showering with me during the day was never an option.
