My partner came by this thread by accident (god knows what she was searching). I have two children (both boys aged 15 and 19 from a previous marriage). My current partner has seven children. Four of them under 13 (2 boys and 2 girls).
Me being me rushing around after getting in from work desperate for the loo walks in our bathroom and the 10 year old girl was in the bath - I appologised and promptly shut the door. I didn't see anything I shouldn't off.
Anyways, later in that evening she commented that it was no big deal and then said she shares a bath with her natural father when she stays at his house. My and my partner was gobsmacked.
This was not going to be ignored and we told our youngster this as it can't be tolerated and allowed and stopped her from going round her dads house.We had no choice but to consult with my mother who worked as a youth social support worker.
Cutting a long story short, her father is not allowed to see the children unless supervised by a official support worker and he was convicted of carrying out a indecent activity which landed him a suspended jail sentence.
Our girl is now 11 years old - all this was happening between the ages of 8 and 10.
This girl you quote is only 18 months younger than what our daughter was so I completely agree with you that this is 100% a disgusting and perverting course of action.
My own two children never ever shared a bath, even with myself or their mother. Neither do the four children in our house, this includes having a 3 year old girl. Yes, we condone kids sharing a bath at suitable ages, but at a very young age. Due to the fact there is a 7 - 8 year gap between the youngster two this would not be allowed.
Forget about all this crap being comfortable with their bodies, etc. Believe me there soon work that our when their older - out of my own two children my youngest is a player and the oldest is in a long term relationship - they soon found their own destiny the normal way.View Thread
