kids bathing together

I have 3 kids. Christopher is almost 7, Kaylee is almost 5 and Kierstyn is 1. At what age should I seperate them from bathing together? And how do I explain to Christopher that he can't bathe with his sisters? He loves to take a bath with them and I don't want him to feel punished by having to bathe alone. So far, there have never been issues with private areas. About 1 year ago, Kaylee did ask where her penis was and I explained that she didn't have one. Other than that, no other ?s or comments! Thanks!

Re: kids bathing together

I honestly think its fine for now... as long as all of them are comfortable with it and you are too. I would guess that in the next year or two your 7yo and/or 5yo will probably want to have more privacy... but until then, I think its fine if they are having fun.

I think it's fine. The oldest will lyk when he needs his privacy.

I'd say to follow their cues. The older one will probably let you know when he's ready for some privacy.

Re: kids bathing together

PPs have the right idea I think. When they start wanting their privacy then separate. Other than that let them have their bath and fun too!

Re: kids bathing together

No advice. They all 3 fit in one tub?? Guess that saves on the water bill

Re: kids bathing together

i agree with the pp's, whenever either one of the older ones starts to want privacy, then seperate, until then, keep saving on the water
