Do you let your children take a shower with you??

 I have a 30 month old son and sometimes he showers with me. Not often but kinda rare. If not he walks in on me since I leave the door unlocked because in the mornings it's just me and him home. Is this OK or I shouldn't be doing this at all since he is a boy. On another note, my 5 y/o sometimes showers with me but it is rare. Should I stop?? If your children do shower with you, what is the maximum age to stop??

My 3 yo dd used to shower with me all the time, but now I don't even let her see me change because she has developed this weird fascination with my boobs. I'm not sure if it's normal but it makes me uncomfortable. If she wasn't weird about it I wouldn't mind showering with her.

I have girls and we used to on occasion, but they are 6 and 9 now so I don't do that anymore.

I don't see a problem bathing with kids no matter the age or gender.

at the age of the child wanting to touch then it should stop. mine never showered with me after they was 1. and they NEVER showered with dh at all.

 Tell me about it!!! I like it somewhat hot but when he gets in he has to have it warm. So I don't like it =)

I did giggle at 30 month old, 2 year old would suffice, on the topic, my dd is 60 months old and still showers with me on occasion. Usually kids will determine what they feel comfortable with.

I think once they're 3 years old is when it should stop. I still shower with my 18 month old.
