I know this girl who takes baths with her 4 and 5 year old boys. Do you think that's weird?

A bit, I shower with my 3yo but he isn't curious about my body.

I regularly took a shower with my 4 year old son, it was the quickest way to get us both ready in the morning so I could get to work on time.  we'd shower, get dressed, and then he would watch tv and eat breakfast while I did my hair and face.

it stopped soon after his 4th birthday though, because he was getting too old.

YES I think it is weird. Because they aren't babies at that age they should be bathing themelves. The four year old with assistance maybe and the five year should be checked on to make sure they are actually clean, but in the tub with them I think is a bit much.

Uhm no? Why is it weird?

Naked bodies are not sexual. The fact that a mother can no longer bathe with her sons is sad.

Nope.

Seriously, people are so puritanical. People bathe with their kids and other family members at all ages in many parts of the world. Pretty sure they're not all scarred for life for seeing the same breasts/penises every other human being on the planet has.

No- it doesn't strike me as odd.

My 7yo sometimes showers with me. More like.. he plays in the water and I shower. Whatever.
