Within the 2-4 age range they should have been taught how to shower/wash themselves well enough to get themselves clean.

I read it wrong, I voted I never did to start with, but I still occasionally shower with my 3yo dd. it's pretty rare, it usually only happens when she's sick or we have to rush to get us both showered for some reason. I wash her hair, but she does everything else.

Good question. I'm not sure. I don't have a DD.

 My oldest is 11 we shower together all the time and also my 5 yr old and 16 month old, its crowded but who cares. lol

My kids shower by themselves as well an have since 3 yrs old, we dont do baths here unless it to relax or to play. But sometimes we all need a shower so we all hope in together.

i never showered with my dd at any age, just never thought about it, she showered on her own when she was old enough and i gave my dd a bath when she was real young.

I only have a boy and we still shower together, he is 7. If I had a girl, it would be indefinite.
