My son is 5years old and my twin girls are turning 3 in November and I have started to keep the girls out of my sons room when he is getting dressed or having a bath as he asked me to not let them in anymore he feels imbarressed. So I think it depends on the kids behaviour if you don't have inquisitive kids I dont think you should make an issue out of it.

i think it depends on the children... but if u r feelin uncomfortable bout the situation... maybe u should cease it... with sayin that my children started the "bath talk" and i told them if they keep it up no more baths together... since then they have stopped cause they do have fun in the tub...

Making a big deal out of nothing!! If your boy was a little girl sh'd probably be comparing!! She'll get over it in a couple of weeks... if it gets to much just say "thats enuf talking about babies (whatever youcall it) for tonite thank you lets talk about something else" My daughter is four and still has baths with her cousin kyle and lucas 4 and 2 ans its not a big deal. in a few more years yes but my bro was born when i was 10 ans i bathed with him for a couple of years to help mum out! (i must remind him of that lol) he's now 18!

My daughter will be 4 next month and my son is 1. They love taking baths together but it seems recently that my daughter is very aware of my son's naked body and makes comments about it alot in the tub. I try to be open about her sexuality and never had a problem with it but with how she keeps pointing and talking about his penis, I was getting a little uncomfortable. Tell me I am making a big deal out of nothing....please.
