How old is too old to shower with your child?

Okay I don't have a shower-age child yet, I'm just wondering what ages you would or have stopped showering with your child and if you have different answers based on the child's gender. I have heard bringing your child in the shower allows mommy time to get clean too and that's the best reason to do it.

I stopped showering with my sons when the oldest was 3.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

I think that if you and the child still feel comfortable then it is ok to shower with your child. When one of you is uncomfortable then it is time to end it. WIth that said, my son is 3.5 and sometimes I'll still stick him in the shower with me.

When they were little like toddler aged I didn't mind, but they are 6 years old now so I don't let my sons shower with me.

With both my boys...I would shower with them when they were babies....

but once they started getting all googily eyed at my Boobies...that was it!

It was probably around the 1yr marker.

I might be different with a girl though.

my daughter is 6, she showers with me sometimes when we are rushed.

if she was a boy, it would have been 2 or so.

and my daughter never showered with my husband.

where as any boys i may have, will be allowed to shower with daddy untill daddy isnt comfratable with it. (unless it goes on till 8 or 9 or 10 and the like, then its too far)

 

 

 

funny shower story accually, whenever we are in the shower and im washing my hair, my arms are above my head, and the water runs off my elbow. and she goes "ELBOW PEE!!! EEW!"

so what does smart ass mommy do?

i do it on purpose now :)
