What age is inappropriate to bathe with your child?

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi, I was just wondering what age everyone thinks is too old to be getting a bath or shower with their children? I was wondering for both sexes also.

I don't think it has to do with age. I think when your kid can point to ur genitals with curiosity..it's done. I bathed with my child until he was 2, the minute he grabbed my breast and laughed it was solo time lol

I personally feel that in the case of father daughter it should end as soon as she's can walk (toddler). My uncle took showers with my cousin until she was 4 and it caused ALOT of problems with certain people. I think it's different for mothers...probably around 2 is when it should end. Maybe 3 (:

Hmmmm. Good question. I've rarely bathed with my children, but I do get dressed around them. My kids are 5, 3, 2, and 6 months. I also nurse my baby aroubd them. I guess when it starts to ferl weird I will stop? My mom still gets dressed around me occasionally and I've talked to her while shes bathing... but she would never do that with my brother around lol

I took a bath with my mom until i was like 3 and a half i think. I NEVER took a bath or anything like that with my dad. My daughter can take a bath with me until she is 3 and a half or 4, but she has never and will never bathe with my husband. There is an almost 2 year old in the town next to mine that bathes with her "dad" and now she wont keep her hands off of everyone's genitals or butts.

IDK, I've only showered with my 8 month old. the twins (almost 2) are scared of it and prefer to bathe with each other. IDK how long I will bathe with the baby. Until he does something to make it uncomfortable I guess. Their dad refuses to be naked around them o.O

I think that has something more to it then just bathing with the father, my son is almost two and we still take showers together as his father is on the other side of the country atm and i cant leave him alone while i shower because he tends to get into stuff. He does not try to touch other peoples genitals or butts. Even with me the most he will do its point to my boob then point to his little man boob lmfao. Has there ever been anything mentioned to anyone about this as there just seems to be more to it then what is said is going on.

Yeah, i think there may have been something going on also, but we havent had anything to do with them in a looong time, so i dont know what has happened to the poor child. No one has said anything about it. She will do it to anyone (mostly men)

Sounds like cps needs to be called to make sure everything is normal. It just sounds like there is something strange going on there. I mean yes it is normal for kids to be interested in body parts but not like that. Like my son since he was an infant has always had a thing for putting his hands on womens breast but it stopped after a little while. For a child to be always doing that especially to men could mean there is something nasty going on behind closed doors. I wonder if there are any other signs that something could be going on.

When men that she didnt know would come around, she would always panic and try to run and hide. The woman that has her isnt even related to her. She said that she adopted the child with the father's signature, but wouldnt you need the mother's too? I know nothing about adoption, but if this woman adopted this child, then why was the mother constantly trying to get the child back?
