My son is 5 and my daughter is 3 and every time it come to bath time they beg to take a bath together because they want to play. I'm just starting to feel like they're too old to bath together so bath time always sucks bc they're always crying for one another! I even bought them seperate bath toys but they won't touch them!Answer Question

I think they are past the age of bathing together. I have a two boys- 5 and 2- who just stopped bathing together but because you have a boy and a girl... I would suggest to stop now. Not that I'm saying you wouldn't watch your kids but I just know that at 5 boys are more curious b/c of being in kinder and exposed to different things. I just wouldn't want bath time to turn into "discovery" time between the two.

please don't take this the wrong way but I don't think I would have started having them bathing together in the first place. I only have boys and I bathe them together all the time but if I had a girl there would be no way she would be bathing with any of the boys, I don't care how close in age they are. But that's just me. But in answer to your question, being that they have been bathing together maybe you should try "weaning" them from each other. Start by (if you bathe them every night) doing one night a week separate bathing night, and then the rest of the week together, then 2 nights separate, then 3 nights separate, and so on until they only have 1 night a week of bathing together. It may take a little while but eventually they will be able to bathe separately. Good luck!
