How old is too old

For your kids to be coming into the bathroom while you are using it?

Because my 12 year olds and 8 year olds still do it, and MIL thinks I should be putting a stop to it.

Like wise, how old is to old to be going in when your children are using the bathroom? I dont do it to often, but I will when I have to and none of my children have any issue using the bathroom in front of one another. Should I be putting a stop to this as well?

I am talking both toileting and bathing.

I never stopped doing that to my mom. My brothers did once they hit the double digits though.

I grew up in a house where it wasnt a big deal and it isnt a big deal in our house either

I no longer let my six year old invade my space during that time.

It's up to you but that would be too old for me. My oldest is eight and if he tries to come in I tell him to wait his turn.

I'm 35 and my mom still wouldn't care about either so I'm not the best person to say on this.

My 14 yr old still hangs out in the bathroom with me when I have her. My 12 yr old son will still.come in and talk to me. But then, we aren't the most modest if families. Lol

I stopped my kids young unless it was an emergency.
I don't go in if they are in there either.
We all have our own bathrooms do there really is no need.
