I do manly because it started when we found mold in the walls of the other bathroom after a friend who was house sitting put his hand on the wall and it went through..and it took the landlord literally a year to fix it to working order..so she had too all we had was a stand up shower and she was only 2. after a year it became habit now at age 3 I let her choose a shower or bath..what she chooses depends on her mood

 Yep. I shower with my 3 and 6 yo. I wash them super fast, and get them out. My DH dries them up and gets them in PJs. It's like a 5 minute shower.

Yes, we do. I think as long as child/parent is comfortable with it, go for it. My daughter has been asking questions since 2, lol. We are honest with her.

My husband always showers with our boys and i always shower with my daughter. They are 5,3,3, and 2 and they have never asked questions. When my boys were real small i used to shower with them as well.

I bathed with my son when he was a infant, then my husband would dry him off. But I don't now. I think after 2ish, it should stop, but that just my opinion.

Yes. Our shower door swings open so it is impossible to get a shower alone ;D

But I always have loved having a shower and bath with my son. It was such a nice way to calm us. Now he's 18 mo old and its not relaxing. Lol. More like splashing and water squirting everywhere :D

 My DD showered with my until she was about three, maybe even four. It was always easier in the morning before work to have her in there with me, playing with toys, washing her real quick then to bath her separately.
