My 5 yr old son recently decided that he needs privacy from ALL women, including me! I understand his need, but since my husband can't always be here to do it I was wondering if he's old enough to do it himself. If I run the water and leave the door open, is it safe to let him take a bath without supervision? I would be less than 10ft away, so i could listen for him. My husband can help with his a couple of nights a week, so my son would just be washing his body. I think he's old enough, I've just always been told not to leave kids in the bath alone. Please help!
