My son who will be 18 years old soon sometimes watches my 10 month old daughter while I'm at work. And the other day he told me that she wanted in the tub when he was gonna take a shower (she always wants in the bathtub) so he put her in there and took a bath with her. Is that weird to anyone else?

I was brought up in an open house as well. I have a teenage boy and a 5yo girl and I wouldn't have them having a bath together. My boys bathed together until they were about 6/4 but they were only 2.5 years apart.
My kids see my naked and it's not a big deal but siblings bathing together, you have to draw the line.

I hate to think ill of my own son, but it just didn't sit right with me. So I addressed the issue right away and responded to him saying I didn't think he should do that cause she is getting to a curious age and he said he wouldn't do it anymore.
I was raised in a very open family, I can remember my dad running around the house after he took a shower naked or oftentimes in his whitey tighties as my best friend from school use to say.
So I am not a really private person at all. But this really got to me that he would do that. So my sitter has been watching my little girl even when my son doesn't have school or work.

I wouldn't have an adult (other than parents) bathe with a baby.
Surely he could wait to have a shower or had one before you left.
