I personally want to know how exactly you know that this information.
I do take showers with my children quite a bit. being ashamed or hiding your body is wrong, the human body is beautiful and it should be enjoyed.
children of the same sex as the parent should be able to ask questions about the parents body, it's one they will grow into in their own skin. both my girls understand that Mommy has boobs and they will too soon. also they will end up taking showers at school with other girls, they need to be taught now not to stare at other people in those situations.
also, maybe they have a bath tub that is large enough to share like a whirlpool tub? or maybe the child has a health issue that can't bathe alone and maybe dad actually does has some coverage on.View Thread
I had mine at 9 but they say it can start as early as 8. I don't have much ideas as for how to handle it as I still haven't discussed it with my DD who is 8, but I'm going to need to, she's moody and very up and down most of the time. View Thread
ok so I know it's been forever since I was here. but to update..... Katlyn is now 8, and doing well, we started her on ADHD meds in January to help with her ADHD and because she was showing some OCD, they seem to be working fine. Belle is 6 and has been diagnosed as Epileptic. she is controlled mostly by medication. she also has hypothyroidism. as for me, I'm doing good, still working at the same place but right now I'm on medical leave for a torn gastroc (calf muscle) hopefully I get to go back to work soon this summer seems to be dragging with not working.View Thread
