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

Posted by   + Show Post

 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??

LOL my son's are 22 and 17, I don't think they would want to shower with me

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

Totally up to you. It is a cultural hangup and nothing more. In places like Japan, people of the same gender think absolutely nothing of being naked in public baths with total strangers, much less family.

Maybe if we women were less prudish and allowed our daughters to see us accepting our flawed bodies and being confident on our own skin, we wouldn't have some darn many young women hating their own bodies so much and having the disorders to prove it:(

I say do what makes you comfortable. 

My kids are 2 and 4 (girl and boy)....they don't like showers, so no, they don't shower with me....but, they do both walk in on me whenever they feel like it. It hasn't been an issue in my house yet.

Yeah. My daughter is four. It saves water and it's fun. I'll stop when she gets uncomfortable. I could care less if she sees me naked.

My 3 year old daughter does. I'm very uncomfortable with my 5 year old son now. He just seems to old to be seeing me naked!

I meant to add I think you should stop when the kids get uncomfortable. However I don't find it inappropriate at any age. Granted nothing sexual goes on. Which should be a given.
