My husband wouldn't and I just don't. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, it's just not something I find convenient or easy.

My family is a bunch of nudists. So baths and stuff isn't any different when we walk around naked. If you don't make it sexual then it's not sexual. It's just a body. Completely natural.

I shower with my daughter and she's 4. I often wonder how old is too old to continue doing this? She has questions about my body, I answer them. I don't feel ashamed and neither does she.

My husband however, won't bathe or shower with her as he feels uncomfortable.

I take baths sometimes with Seth. It's not fast or convenient, so I just give him his baths alone most of the time. Until a certain point, we'll continue to do that, but after a year or so I don't know if I'll feel comfortable with it.



It's just personal opinion.

I don't understand the problem with children asking questions.



Personally, I'd rather my child ask ME about nudity and body parts than me hide them and act as though there's something wrong with our naked body parts, and him/her find out misinformation from kids on the playground or whatever.



When did we as a society become so ashamed of our naked bodies?

I come from the land of public bathhouses lol (Japan). I'm used to bathing with family and friends from a very young age. It's not that big of a deal. Micah will bathe with both me and my hubby.
