My name is Folasade. I have a three year old girl. Recently, I read an article that says one should avoid getting dressed in front of a child once he/she is two years old. Moms, what are the advantages and disadvantages of dressing in the presence of my child.

No. I don't see the need to. I was still bathing with my son at that age. My husband was still showering with our daughter at that age. Honestly, he will let you know when it is enough.

It never occured to me. . . So should i stop bathing or changing infront of my almost 3 year old son. We bath or shower together, sometimes. Should i stop this?

Where on earth did you read this article? That's ridiculous!! Heck, my daughter was still showering with me until she was almost 5. She is now almost 10 and will still sit in my room and talk to me sometimes while I change. If we hide our bodies from our children, we are teaching them it is something to be ashamed of. My daughter and I can have very real and comfortable conversations about how our bodies change as we get older, and it doesn't bother her in the least! I just can't believe it is such a big deal for some people. I'm not talking about walking around the house naked, but changing in front of a very young child, or an older child of the same sex is not something I'd give two thoughts about.

My children have always seen me naked. I teach my children that the human body is nothing to be ashamed/embarrassed about.
