Is it weird i still shower with my 3 and 1 year old. My oldest noticed my anatomy difference awhile ago. We are very specific on boy and girl parts. If i attempt a sneak away shower when daddy is home they find me and jump in. We enjoy it. Its a nightly thing. I will continue this till they decide its uncomfortable.

Not a big deal to me, we bathed with our LOs (dd and ds) until when they each got to 3 or so too.

I guess i dont mean uncomfortable just until they no longer want to. I will never shade my bra changing and dressing they are welcome to see me in any state im in.

While I don't think they should feel ashamed, or embarrassed to see the female body, I also don't think your vagina should be hanging out in front of your sons. They have to learn appropriate behavior, and the importance of privacy.

I just feel as parents it's our job to teach our children boundries and at some point you are going to have to set some there. Do you really want your 10 year old staring at your vagina?.

That seems normal for 3 and 1. I used to shower with my ds7 up until he was around 3 or 4, but now I don't. I don't make a big deal if I'm undressed in front of him, but if he does walk in I calmly ask for some privacy.

Here in Finland families go together to sauna, children learn early on that there is nothing to be ashamed of with your body and also that bodies come with all sizes and shapes - nudity has nothing to do with sex.
