Taking a bath alone

At what age did you start to let your child take a bath by themselves (no help from Mommy)?

My daughter started bathing herself (with supervision) around 4. At about age 5 we switched to taking showers because they were faster and didn't use as much water. I still needed to wash her hair since it was quite long until she was about 6 (she got it cut short!). After that she was on her own!

My boys were about 5 when they had a bath on their own but with the door open so I could here them. In fact my youngest son did not splash about much so I made him sing!!!!!

My girls were a little over 4. Of course, that's when we first GOT a tub (other than a shower). I still did their hair and did a 'body check' once a week or so. I forget when the 'body checks' stopped, but the hair assistance continued... at least on occasion, til 6ish.
