I have 6 and a 5 yr old sons. We use an 18 yr old babysitter who is very good. So far my boys have always been ready for bed when the baby sitter comes, so baths have never been an issue. However, in a few weeks my husband will be out of town and I will be away from home from noon until late at night. My boys will be with some friends on a farm, the baby sitter will take them from there to home after supper and put them to bed. I know that they will be playing and getting dirty, and probably need a bath.
A friend said that boys of that age should not be seen naked except by their mother. I don't know if I agree or not. What do others think? I am mainly worried about the aspect of nudity with the opposite gender. Other aspects of the afternoon I am OK with. The baby sitter is very experienced, and they have been with the other family at their farm many times.
