I think that is not okay. I have twin 5 yr old girls and they're just to curious. They would ask so many questions. Hell my dh will even sit down to pee because he doesn't want them to see. I think for daddy's and little girls is just kind of odd except if they're babies. The same for my ds. Once he is a toddler and is curious i would no longer take showers with him.
when they start asking about body parts times up
Quoting bearsbabies:When they or u feel its awkward
Quoting LexRi0709:Imo parents shouldn't shower with children of the opposite sex, ever. My girls are 3 and 5, and I have probably showered 2x with each girl. I'm just not comfortable with it.
Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:When the kids say they feel uncomfortable or ask not to...
Every kid is dfferent.
My oldest are 5 & 3 and they still shower with me. Saves water wit all 3 of us there and I can make sure they wash up. No big deal to me.
Agreed, and ditto.
For me, I was still taking showers with my son at age 5, as in just turned. Over the past year, we've gravitated away from showering together, though he still showers with dad. Whatever is fine. Honestly, we have all these hangups about sex... kids don't know these things are culturally wrong unless we get all uptight about it. I remember a while back a woman freaking out that any kid of any age, even 2, would ever see either of their parents without at least underwear on. Honestly, I think that sort of thing is slightly unhealthy, and speaks to the mother's hangups about the human body. All that being said, the comfort of the parents and the children are what matters most. If they're not comfortable, then they shouldn't do it. If they are, then who cares?
the cut off is when they start school.
