Is it fine for me to bathe with my child naked?
Q: I have a baby girl, 20 months old. Till how long is it fine for me to bathe with her, naked? At what age does a child come to know about body parts adults have. How should I tackle her questions about sexuality, which she will be asking in another one year?
A:It’s perfectly alright for you to take a bath with your child watching you. Children treat the body as normal and are not squeamish as adults are, about body parts. Let her learn in the most normal way. It is too early for you to worry about her questions on sexuality! She will have to be some kind of prodigy to ask you questions in the next year! Handle the questions as they arise, calmly and at the level of the child's understanding.
