Rub-a-dub-dub, two adorable kids in a tub — what could be cuter than watching your favorite little boy and girl splash together during bath time? Getting both of your little ones in the bath at the same time is a time-saving trick parents have been relying on for decades. It conserves water, solves the problem of what to do with your restless toddler when your preschooler has spaghetti in her hair and makes for memorable photo ops — but at what point can this precious scenario turn awkward? As soon as children become aware of their own gender identity, and the physiological and biological changes their body will undergo, co-bathing should cease, Hafeez says. Laurie A. Gray, the founder and president of Socratic Parenting LLC and the author of A Simple Guide to Socratic Parenting , says she encourages families to focus on healthy bodies and healthy boundaries as soon as children begin to learn language. Since children learn from their parents and the habits we model for them, it should come as no surprise that the way we regard and talk about our own bodies will have a direct impact on how we encourage them to think about their bodies at a time when their curiosity is peaking.
