At what age did you stop showering with your child(ren)?

My oldest daughter is 5 years old, occassionally when I'm showering she'll shower with me along with my 3 year old daughter, I'm thinking about stoping our showers very soon, she's getting older and I don't wanna be showering with her for too much longer. How old were your kids when you stoped showering with them?! him/her?

  • I'm a selfish shower getter too. LOL If I wasn't, I would stop when their self consciousness kicked in and they said Eewww no more or I want to shower alone now...LOL

  • Sorry, can't be of help since I never showered with either of my kids! They both like their baths for now and I enjoy the few minutes of piece and quiet while showering alone ;-)

  • I have 3 girls, and we do this if we are really rushed and have to be somewhere, so it's just easier and quicker (for me), instead of 4 individual washings...........I think it's really your decision and what you feel comfortable with, like if your self-conscious or something, and want to start showering alone for yourself.

  • We NEVER showered with our kids past 6 months... Once they were too big for us to wash and hand off to parent number 2, they were out... They took baths from that point on. But I would NEVER have bathed or showered with them past a year anyways, it's to easily seen to be something dirty and it's not worth risking custody over should someone decide to call CPS...

  • But I would say like 3 is the time to stop, since that's when you start remembering things supposedly.
