I am the mother to a 9 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. My son I used to shower with when he was very little but stopped before he hit 1 year. My daughter and I, however, have been extremely close since she was born. I breastfeeding fed her for over a year because I had a hard time with the seperation, we spend a lot of time together, and have showered together her whole life. We've obviously taken separate showers and baths but showering together is still done on a regular basis. I don't force her, obviously if she wanted privacy or started to feel uncomfortable I'd give her space. But it's a natural thing for us at this point, mainly when getting ready to leave the house. My question isn't regarding if this is right or wrong, as I don't see anything wrong in it, but I am curious about public opinion on the matter, and if any other mothers have or would consider showering with their 8 year old (or even older) daughters? Thanks in advance.
