    DD is nearly 7 and still showers with me. DS is 10 and stopped about a year ago unless DH is not home and he needs his hair washed - he can do it but chooses not to. I stopped showering with him when his nose was higher than my b00bs. He doesn't agree at all because he likes the temperature I have the water on more than DH.

    Have to agree hay shower time is the best chat time, we have the most priceless conversation in the bathroom.

    My dd is 7 and has started to ask to have a shower or bath by herself.
    She stopped having a shower with dh around 5yrs and I want to have a shower by myself so have mine later. So its just her a her 2yo brother sharing and she wants her own space

    We shower or bath with DS, who is 2. We're comfortable with this arrangement and will probably stop when he wants to. It did bring forward the body parts discussion though after DS kept referring to "mummy's doodle" to anyone that would listen.

    Still shower with DS and he is 4 in March. I don't know when we will stop. Whenever someone feels uncomfortable I guess.

    Default Showering with kids

    DD stopped showering with us when she was around 6 but will still come and chat to us when we are having our showers (me more so then DH) because for some reason what she has to say can't wait until I get out. DS1 was around 7 when he stopped but he had baths with DS2 until he was 9 he also finds important things to discuss the moment I get in the shower. DS2 is only 4 but hates the shower and will only bath so doesn't share very often but if one of us is trying to enjoy a soak 8/10 times we end up with him jumping in

    Default Showering with kids

    The bum comments make me giggle, as I have been on the receiving end of those, as well as hair comments and big boobie comments which is funny as I am a paltry b cup!

    My little ones will occasionally shower with me, they're 4 and 6 and very rarely with Miss 7, however Miss 10 stop sharing a shower a few years ago now.

    When they decide to stop. DS1 stopped around 8-9. But still at 21 will walk in for a chat when he is visiting me. He still likes me to come in and sit to talk when he's showering.

    Showers are definitely a great time for talking!

    Hmm...I would say puberty or just before. I don't think I would have wanted to shower with my parents after 8-10 (I was an early developer).

    Eta. Ds has only just started showering with me at almost 3. He hated the shower before that.

    The rule in our house is when someone feels uncomfortable, either parent or child. With DD it was about 8 from memory, and DS1 was about 6, both I initiated. DH still sometimes baths with DS1, and son 1 is perfectly fine with me seeing him naked (he's going on 10).

    DH was funny about bathing with DD after about 2. Not bc of her seeing him, but he was worried she would say in passing to others that she still bathed with Daddy and people would think ill of it. He's funny in that way, I told him so many times he was overreacting. But, he felt uncomfortable so that was the rule we set so he stopped.
