Lol...erm maybe becuase im older now, but i never really bathed with my parents when i was young...

I dont see whats wrong with it if you are young, say 5 months, so and so, not like 3 years.

i dont know, i wouldnt personally do it with my child, i dont see the point really. but people do say, it lets parents and the child bond

abeg, i no know my sista

Dee! said...

This is a huge question...

For me o ... I used to bathe with my kids, the moment they started talking... I had to advise my self to stop. Eh! b4 I begin hear questions wey I no go fit answer!
hehehehe!

BLOGVILLE IDOL 08 is coming soon..please check my blog for more details

Standtall said...

Depends on their age really but I will say why not. Espcially when they are young and when they ask questions about the private part and the hair around it, be honest about everything with them

Lady A said...

Why not? Now, when your child hits 10 and up, ok, I have an issue. When they are 9 yrs. old, they r still innocent and don't really see it "nasty" to see their parent naked.

Uhmm....i guess it depends..when they'r younger, y not? buh when they become 7.8? i dunno o
Nice one!

shalewa said...

well,i think its ok when they r still very young say 1-6 years.Then u can answer whatever question and teach them.Imaginig it makes me laff.How u dey?

Afrobabe said...

To a certain age yes....I think 8 is the ideal age to stop...But then at 7 I was staring at my mum's pubic hair and wondering what was wrong with mine!!!

Today's ranting said...

yup its cool. Good for bonding moments. you splash water at each other but thats when they are younger.

darkelcee said...

its a bonding thing but it must stop once they start talking.

kids can be funny

Lady Koko said...

YEAH....AWW.. ALWAYS THINK BOUT BATHING WIV MA KIDS....WELL MAYBE WEN THEY ARE RIPE....AND THEIR EYES ARE IN FULL VIEW..THEN ITS BEST TO STOP..B4 THEY GO TO SCOOL AND EXPOSE A COUPLE OF FAMILY SECRETS..HEHEHEHEHE.....AWWW I MISS TAKING A SHOWER WIV MY BIG BRO!!!!!!!FUN TIMES MEHNNN!!!!!!!
P.S: XOXO

aloted said...

Hmm bath with your kids? Me I dunno about that one o..never thought of it like that like that.

Maybe when i have kids i will have the answer to that one. can u wait for my answer till then ;)

ibiluv said...

whatever works for u.....i dont care about stages of undress with kids.....but with nudity espcially with kids of the opposite sex.....5/6yrs is aiight to stop bathing with them.........

naijalines said...

I'm struggling with the notion that one has to bathe with one's kids at all. I guess if one has to, it should be same sex only (as in father/son, mum/daughter) and 3/4 years maximum.

Debbie said...

Noo, Noo, Noo! for girls, it may be alright to bath with mum up till they are maybe 3. I say 3, because, when I was growing up, I've heard kids come out and said to me, my mum has hairs in her bottom, I use to wonder what they were saying.
Yes I know we are family, but don't start what you don't intend to contiune. If you want to teach them the intimate stuff, let it be in the comfort of the living room.

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

okay, let me tell the truth, I bathe with my kids. Not often, but there are times when I am in the shower and one of them needs to clean up from rolling around in the backyard or covering his face (usually the boys) with food.

Now, will my kids and I continue to shower together forever? Of course not. There will come a time when it becomes inappropriate to do so. But for now, my 4 year old, 2.5 year old and 1 year old have the privilege of sharing a shower with me and telling me "Mummy, you have a biggy bum bum" and there is no embarrassment. lol!

Did i provide a sufficient response? If not, make you tell me oh, =)

TinTin said...

lmaoooooooooo!!!!

Tairebabs said...

I could have sworn I had made my comments on this post some days back. Anyway sha, bathing with your kids, well when the kids are younger I think it is ok (especially for bonding) but once they start to talk and know what bumbum and boobs mean, put an end to it o!

Smaragd said...

my 4 yr-old cousin is definitely not someone to bathe with! children these days are much more exposed than we assume.

so it's a BIG NO!

Onome said...

heeheehee...i see nothing wrong with it..so long as dey dont go 'mummy has a big bum bum' to outsiders..seriously i see nothing wrong with it

Duchess said...

its not wrong....but one needs to stop it when they are old enuf to notice the diff btwn a big bum from a small one...lol

Dammy said...

Why start something you would have to stop sooner or later?
If it is really about BONDING, there are other way of bonding! You can do other things with them and make out time to take them out.

Children don't always forget what they see most especially in their formative stages. They relate better with visuals which is stored in the subsconsciousness and becomes a term of reference later on in life!

Before they startasking questions you can't answer...it is better not to even start it!

How you dey?

Allied said...

lol..It depends oh... i can only do it till 2 yrs old..

But what is the difference bwt taking a shower with your children and dressing in front of your children?

Mz. Dee said...

Oh well i think itz cool.. pipz up there are ryt bout the bondin thing.
Well until lyk 5 or sumn.
I think i'd do it with my kid till he/she was lyk 3.. itz sweeet!!

1stpet2v9 said...

why not? i dunno oh! my parents didn't bathe with me. I'm good oh Lg.. dis one way u remember me today

Original Mgbeke said...

Hmmm..how old is the kid? I think that after a certain age you shouldn't. I never sabi the age yet sha.

And yes mai sister, I dey chop chicken now o. :D

NigerianDramaQueen said...

From ages 0-3, MAYBE. After that I dont think so. Especially if the child is of the opposite sex...
My parents never bathed with me sha-and I dont think I missed anything!

In My Own Words said...

My sister, thnx for remembering me always. Had to deal with some stuff and got too distracted. But here I am...still standing.

My parents never did with me...too conservative. As for me, I no know oh.

How you dey? Good, I hope.

Charizard said...

mehn me no Know...

Free-flowing Florida said...

hmmm. i've answer n d negative. wen my nephew was 2, i was bathing with him. i was undressed as he was. but i wanted 2 start wit him first. only 4 d yeye boy 2 look me up & down b4 declaring 'aunty FFF, u've fine legs' Ha! i screamed o. i even reported him 2 his daddy. my fear is dat, if he can tell dat i have fine legs, den he can just look a bit up & tell dat d thing between those legs r not like d one between his own.

OluwaDee said...

Its ok when d kids r still young (1-3/4).

Sha said...

archiwiz said...

Ahh, no ohh... It never happened to my knowledge. I was only "forced" to watch my mum bathe from time to time. I hope not to bathe with my kids either... Its just... weird.

Minky said...

Lol..I think its fine when they are still young. It can even save time.

Lighty 'neferet' Kopearl said...

NOOOOOOOOOO. dont like the idea. at all.

NikkiSab said...

2 yrs old and below is fine with me. but i tink i am comfortable with sons = fathers and mothers = daughters. I tink its easier to answere questions on same sex dan opposite sex.

Jaycee said...

Nooooooooooooooooo.........lolllll.

But wait a second. Whats wrong with that??? LOLLLL. Indecent exposure. Let's take for instance a woman bathing with her 2-yr old son. He's going to be wanting to bathe with other women at a really tender age...lolll. Not kewl!

Parakeet said...

E be like say u're getting too immersed into western culture? Why cant parents have a bath with their kids if they're quite small...at least 7yrs and below...abi you dey read Freud?

tobenna said...

Thats a Nigerian child :)
See ya bum bum!

I dont think its a big deal to have your bath with your kids. My take.

Smaragd said...

madam LG, where art thou? it's very unlike u not to update o... hope all is well...

princesa said...

I took baths with my mum as a kid(like 8yrs) and i dont think it affected me negatively sha.
How u dey babes?

ejura said...

-mummy see your bum bum
-Yes sweet heart, that's mummy's buttocks
-Butshocks?
-No b u t t o c k s, you have one too.
-I have?
-Yes dear
-How about this one here?
-This one? That's a vagina. You have one too
- I have one?
-Yes, that's yours...
-Va shina
-No vagina dear and we have to keep it clean because you pee from here
-child giggles. Mummy, does daddy have one too?
-Yes, he does but he has a penis
-Fenis?

LG, i don't know. It all depends on how soon you want to handle this conversation or not.

Writefreak said...

Hmmm....i wouldn't bath with my child who is starting to talk...kids these days can say anything and i think everyone is entitled to their own privacy..there are other ways of bonding with a child than bathing with them....my opinion!

Olamild said...

uhmm uhmmm uhmmm **scratches head**

When daddies bathe with daughters or Mummies with sons....thats just maiming!!!

Once i had a bath with my 3yr old niece and she couldnt stop staring at my 38GG boobs....I swear the girl was traumatized as her mum is only a 34B!!

lol!!

tobenna said...

For want of nothing else to say......
GoDAMMIT!!
38GG??!!

Kemmie said...

After a certain age, for boys, around 5 years old, they shouldn't see mummy naked......(Mothers&Sons by Jean Lush). Jean Lush's believes that it can lead strange sexuality for boys, like homosexuality. Basically not appreciating the female body because that's "mummy"...so, being aroused by a man's body instead. It's a school thought that it made sense to me so I took it onboard.

*How are you?

rayo said...

eesshhh, will u even get to read this fifty sumtnth post, oooohhhh, i dont think its nyc, i think its icky, bathing wit ur kid, oh no.

LG said...

chi-grace said...

Aijay said...

LOL @ Tobenna...

Well, I've never thought about this but I don't think its improper to bathe with ur kids. Its something I could do... as long as they're still young.
