  • My two boys take baths together when I'm in a rush, they are 6 and 3. I quit letting my DD take a bath with them when she noticed they had something she didn't.. about a year ago.

  • My 5 year has just in the past few months started taking baths by himself while my 4 yr and 1 year old daughters take a bath together. They are in school and they have to close the door to use the bathroom there so I wanted to reinforce that at home so it became a habit.

  • My 5 year old son takes a bath with my 22 month old son.

    My 7 year old daughter takes a bath with the 22 month old son, too.

    However, my 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son do not bathe together.

  • I think a ten year old girls and a 4 year old boy should be separated actually I don't think boys and girls should be bathing together period at any age but that's my opinion...However, my 9 year old SHOWERS by her self and my 6 and 3 year old girls bathe together

  • MY 11 YEAR OLD THINKS HE CAN STILL SQUEEZE IN THE BATH TUB WITH OUR 3 YEAR OLD. THEY ARE BOTH BOYS. I THINK ITS TIME TO LET THE 3 YEAR OLD KNOW HIS BROTHER ISN'T INTO BUBBLE BATHS ANYMORE.

  • My 6 yr old and 4 yr old boys still take baths together. Their older brother is 10 and has lost interest in bathing with either of them. He usually takes showers and if he takes a bath, he doesn't even want them in the bathroom with him!

  • My two girls (6 and 4) take baths together. My son (almost 9) decided around age 7 that he didn't want to take baths with his sisters anymore. However they do see each other get changed sometimes (due to their habit of getting dressed for school in front of the tv)- they know what the opposite sex has as far as body parts go and really aren't interested. Personally I think nudity becomes an issue when kids make it an issue... at that point they are likely to actively seek out privacy. I can remember getting dressed around my cousins when I was a kid, but around the age when I started having puberty body changes I didn't want to do it anymore because I was self-conscious.

  • I dont think they should be bathing together... girls these days start to develop and get curiouse about themselves at an ealier age than we did when we were younger.... there is a line that needs to be set in my opinion.
