When should you stop showering with your kids? adult content

I asked this question previously and closed it by accident. I have already stopped showering with my 4 year old son for about a year now. We are not shy with nudity I just don't prefer my son to haev the memory of what his mother looked like naked, i don't think he would appreciate it.

  • i stopped showering with my son when he was 3, when he started asking me the difference in our parts, I explained them, and now i dont let him see my privates. I rarely showered with him anyways.

  • oppoiste sex I think 3 or 4 is probably a good age to stop. My dd is 8 and she will still jump in with me every once in a while. I dont think showering with the same sex is ever an issue. Im 31 and still see my mom naked.

  • I think when you both stop being comfortable with it..
    my son is turning 3 and my husbands feels he doesn't want to be naked in front of him but I still will get dressed in front of him or I guess not shy away from him if he walks in while I am dressing..

  • my girls are 7 and 5 and both still shower with me.....I guess whenever we decided someone isn't comfortable with it we will change it

  • We have never showered with our son. We are not shy, but not comfortable with that. Plus...shower time I like to relax.
