  • Thanks, I have been having a hard time trying to figure out what age is appropriate. But from the various answers I guess it's when both child and parent are ready! Thanks again

  • I let my son take a shower by himself at the age of 5...needless to say when I went to get him a fresh towel from the dryer, he opened the curtain and got the floor wet!

    So now Im in there with him when he does cause he HAS to open it to talk to me...WHY I don't know its not like I cannot hear him I say! LOL

    AND I make sure he HAS a towel before stepping in!
