Do you?

Do you ever take baths/showers with your children? Do you think it's wrong? I mean not on a regular basis, but every now and then?

Just a question I thought of.

  • I think it's perfectly fine to a certain age. I would say no older then two years old, if even to that age. For the simple fact that children start recognizing body parts, the differences, and the-like. I think it's wrong for a child to be recognizing that from their parent's body. Especially naked in a shower with them. I have never showered with my children at any age. I personally feel uncomfortable with it in general, but again to a certain age if others want to so be it.

  • I do in the summer after we get out of the pool,though it's a little embarassing,because my boobs are so big.It's fun to take showers together but if I do it again,I'm wearing my bathing suit!

  • I bathe with my 3 month old son sometimes. I will bathe with my 4 yo DD sometimes too. I won't bathe with my son as long as I do my DD though.
