  • He's only two so we still shower together,mostly because it's the easiest way for me to keep an eye on him :) Once he is old enough to play unsupervised anywhere in the house, we'll stop.

  • I never really did. Shower time is the only 'me time' I get and I am very territorial of it =) Very rarely does my 22 mo get in there with me.

  • Agree with above, I never really showered with my spouse. Maybe once or twice, but now that we have a baby, it IS my only "me time" and plus he could use the time to spend with the baby that I'm with all the time!

  • Never took showers with my kids. I took baths with dd until she was about 2 but I like the time to myself in the bathroom so it is off limits.

  • I didn't shower with my child. I always liked for her to soak in a bath. I took showers.

  • I never showered with my kids. For me personally I was uncomfortable with the idea. I don't think it's appropriate for a child to see their parent's naked body. That's just my feelings on it, to each their own.

  • I never really did, like the first responder I'm very protective of my 'me time' these days. I think I did it a couple times when he was really small, but I usually sat him in a bouncer with some nice music playing in the bathroom for my morning showers and we gave him separate baths in the evenings.

  • I had to take my daughter into the tub with me to get her hair washed and combed out until pretty recently. Son and I havent seen each other naked in years, we taught him about privacy and as soon as he was old enough to stop seeing me naked he wanted it both ways so I haven't had to bathe with him since he was pretty young

  • I have never regularly taken a shower with my kids. They are 7 and 5 and occasionally it's necessary to do a very fast assembly line and get it done so whichever one of us is in there takes them while the other parent does the dry-off and dressing (as needed). Usually they still like to soak/play in the tub. I'm not one to force them into showers to shorten the routine. I still let them play as long as they want or until I need to move onto something else.
