Last night my 6 yr old daughter told me she showered with her stepmom multiple times. I asked my ex about it and he admitted it and stated that he didn't know what the big deal was. He stated that their shower was as big as my kitchen. He also told me "How else is she supposed to get clean if I'm not home??" That completely freaked me out....what ELSE is going on I don't know about?? I explained to him that its disgusting that he would allow his wife to shower with our daughter. Its one thing to help wash her when shes in a tub....a whole other thing when his wife is naked with my kid!!! Now, I am not a prude and I have showered with both my kids in the past....I stopped showering with them (one boy/one girl) when they turned 5. However...I am their MOTHER! I have always educated them about body parts and to respect other peoples privacy when changing clothes and using the restroom. After he ripped into me via text he is now backpedalling and stating it will never happen again. I believe this is because I told him I have informed my atty and also called the mediator for a meeting. I am also a stepmom to 2 wonderful kids....and I would NEVER consider showering with them! What would you have done if this happened to you and your child?

I would have done the same as you did. No step parent needs to shower with their step child. Helping them is fine if they are not very good with the bathing part of the bath time. It is an issue with me. Thankfully, my kids were big enough to not have someone help them in the bath.
