Family Bathing – Yay or Nay? What do YOU say?


We are modest with the older kids, but with Gracie my hubby are not modest at all. Both Mike and I shower with her and occasionally bathe with her too.

I used to bathe with 2 of my kids, actually. Only when they were young though. Not after a certain age. (What age? I do not know.)

This was 1997… me and Austin:Austin 1997.11

This was 1999… Austin and Emma used to bathe together:3-13-2010 9;26;51 PM1

Gracie is old enough now to know body parts. With my daycare boy, Jayden, she always says “Jayden’s penis.” So she knows the same about Daddy although she hasn’t been curious about anything yet. 

I don’t see an issue until she gets a bit older.

I am ok with this until they are a bit older. Not sure at what age I think this stuff should stop. I guess each situation is different.

So now it’s your turn…

Family Bathing – Yay or Nay? What do YOU say?
Write a blog post and link up!
If you are not a blogger… we still love you! Let us know what you think in a comment below! We’d LOVE to here from you!!


  1. Although we have different opinions, I respect your view!!

  2. My husband’s family has always walked around in underwear around each other. My family was never permitted to do that. I have never seen my family naked (thankfully – ha). My husband and I do walk around our daughter in underwear, but she has never bathed with us. She is six and I am already feeling a bit uncomfortable with my husband being in his underwear around her. I think it has to do with the way I was raised. I’d have to say “NAY” just because I wouldn’t feel comfortable with it. Everyone is different. :o)

  3. I say YAY!!
    It is sooo much easier to bathe the kids together.
    My 8 month old still bathes with me!

  4. Yes, I’m all about bathing with my kiddos, too. I’m one of those parents who welcomes questions about our bodies, so if a question arises, I will more than happily explain it all. 🙂

  5. My girls take baths together… their 3 & 1, so they have more fun playing together in the tub with their toys and it is so much easier on me to get it all done at once!

  6. My kids 3(boy almost 4) and 1(girl) bathe together as well. Dev showers with both kids and I only shower with my daughter although I will get dressed in front of my son. The funniest thing about it is that I was a very modest kid and thought stuff like this was weird. I just don’t think it’s a big deal. I teach my kids penis and vagina. I don’t sugar coat things. I have other words for those parts too, but my son knows it’s called a penis. I don’t see anything wrong with people who don’t though. i figure own personal preference.
