What is your opinion? When is too old? Mother/Son..Mother/Daughter..Father/Son....Father/Daughter????

 

I really have not done it that much. About 3 weeks ago, We were in a hurry and my 4 year old son and I took a shower together. As we were getting out, he turned to me and said Mommy your Pippy fall off?

 I shower with my 3 year old dd, all she asks is when she will get her chest "bumps"

My 4 year old DS calls them bump bumps!!! It's hilarious! But I do not bathe with my son so bump!

Not a big deal imo. I still shower with my DD. If you don't make a big deal about being naked then it wont be a big deal.

By the time they were old enough and comfortable with taking showers (they loved baths more), they were too old to be in with me or dh taking showers.

My son is two and he showers with me because I'm the only parent around and will not leave him alone by himself.  He thinks nothing of it, I've been showering with him since he was 6 months old.

eta: he does point out body parts but i just smile, correct him if he calls it the wrong thing or say "yes, thats right!" and we just carry on.
