Re: Unsupervised Bathing

My 6 yr old (will be 7 in Feb.) showers alone without help - curtain closed, door open. He has been doing this for about a year with no issues. The faucet in that shower is the type you pull straight out and swing left to right to change the temp. It stays in the same spot all the time at the perfect temp and he knows not to play with it. He is kinda a worry wort so I have no fear of him moving it, the thought of being burned is a significant deterrent for him.

Our 4 and 3 yr olds shower together with DH or I in the room most of the time. We help with washing hair and supervise them washing their bodies to make sure they don't miss any key areas. We feel comfortable folding laundry (which is in the hall right outside the bathroom) or walking out to grab something, etc. while they shower.
