Is it OK for stepmom to shower with 5yo stepson?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I saw on the homepage where this woman was upset about her ex's girlfriend showering with her 5yo son. She was really upset that it was the girlfriend rather than the dad who showered with him.

At what age does it become inappropriate for parents, stepparents, or other caretakers to shower with a child of a different gender?

Um, no... with you or his dad maybe if he is still okay with it. But she is just a girlfriend, your ex should know better.

Ew! I still shower from time to time with my 3 year old but another person showering with my child is unacceptable only me ,dh ,and grandparents do it (really only grandma ) my mom has taken baths for as long as I've known every time she bathes ,and she has a jacuzzi tub so every time she's in the tub her grandkids wanna get in.

I've never done this but their dad used to take baths with the boys when they were younger.
