I have a 13 year old son and a 15 year old daughter, They both get on like normal siblings and our family life is pretty normal. They seem to have no problem with being seen naked by each other. Now please don't get me wrong, they are not walking around the house naked everyday, nor am I suggesting anything even remotely sexual going on. Its just every now and then they act in a way that surprises myself and their mother. I'll give a couple of examples of what I am trying to say. Firstly, do I even have an issue here? I have always tried to avoid teaching body shame, but certainly neither myself or my wife have never been so open with things infront of the kids. I am personally happy just to leave it alone as I don't see any harm being done and it happens at most maybe times a year and only for a few seconds at a time.
How to Shower With Your Kid and Not Make it Weird
Connectivity and togetherness are two very strong themes of the natural parent. Many natural parents opt to bedshare because the family bed allows them to be close to their sleeping children and to better anticipate and attend to their needs. Mealtimes are shared among families of all kinds, as the dinner table is a great way to connect with one another after a busy day. There are other opportunities for connection and togetherness that are less discussed. We all need to bathe, but why make it solitary activity? There are plenty of reasons to share bathtime, particularly with very young children.
It's a great way to teach kids to be comfortable in the bathroom and comfortable with themselves.
Parents shower in front of and bathe with their children all the time. Not only is there nothing wrong with that, a shared bath or open shower is often a necessity for a parent struggling to get free time or caregiving alone. Done right, the family shower can provide an effective forum for a child to wash independently and learn a bit about anatomy while becoming comfortable with their own body. When that happens depends largely on how parents feel about nudity and what message they want to send. Richard Beyer, a licensed psychologist in Arcadia, California.
He sees all families being able to stay together. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. I know "Meet the Mormons" isn't what I'm looking for I went through a very similar experience earlier this year and the community was extremely helpful. One thing that has helped my husband and I was a marriage class we joke that it was more like marriage therapy when we had only been married two years. My husband and I have a much closer relationship than ever before and I just hope that another blue eyed nurse doesn't come along to distract him. Yeah man, don't doubt someone who was a missionary will try to convert you.
