When are Kids too Old to Bathe Together?


I’ll be honest here, as a busy mom it’s a lot easier to throw my kids in the tub together and do it all at once than having to come in and out to bathe them individually. At the end of the day, after taking care of three children and my work, I’m beat! That’s why when it comes to bath time it’s easiest to put the kids in all at the same time. Until recently.

The last couple of months, they have been bickering and fighting in the tub non-stop. One day, my daughter said: “Mom, I think I want to take a shower on my own. My brother is bothering me too much.” I said okay, she got out of the tub and stepped in to the shower located two feet away. End of story.
