Is it weird to take a bath with your toddler?

I put on my bathing suite but he doesn't, its kinda like swimming I think but in a regualr tub, is that weird? I just do it sometimes when we are bored and have nothing to do.

  • No I did. My husband does it every now and then when Jack wants him to sit in the tub with him.

  • most if the people who have issues with it are ones who were sexually abused as a fault of their own it just some things are harder to get over

  • Are you making sexual advances at him? is he making sexual advances at you? Probably not, you are mother and child taking a bath together. Jeesh, why is there such a problem with nakedness? At least, he is learning first hand the differences between male and female and won't resort to peeking thru keyholes and is learning that there is more to being naked than sex.
