At what age is it inappropriate for a daughter to be taking showers with her father.

I have a male friend that has a nine year old daughter and they still take showers together. Just curious if anyone thinks this is inappropriate. To me nine years old is a little bit to old to be taking showers with dad.

  • my brother takes showers with his daughter but wears boxers until she gets out. She's three. I think nine is beyond too old and creepy. thats just not right.

  • Wow, really creepy. I'm almost questioning if someone called on him that cps wouldn't check in on something like that(I didn't say take the kid away). That's just inappropriate and really not necessary.

  • I think thats too old to be showering w/ dad. I think my daughter only showered w/ dad a few times and she was not even a year old.

  • Lol! I just asked my hubby this question and he said he won't take a shower with our three year old daughter let alone a child of either sex at 9! He said that seems kind of perverted to him.....just a dad's input on the subject.

  • Oh yeah that's not right. My kids normal have started getting curious about the private spots of them & others around 3 years old! That's really sick!

  • I would say that 9 yrs old is way too old to be showering with a parent. By 3 years old it should be stopping.

  • that is really creepy, and maybe illegal. 3 is the oldest.
