'Why is it not normal?': Mum defends bath with sons | Stuff.co.nz
I refuse to share a bath with my children. It's not that I think there's anything wrong with it, it's just that my bath time is one of the few moments of the day when I can get a little bit of personal space.
And I mean a little bit: I usually have one or two kids sitting on the bath mat chatting to me as I bath, so I don't get lonely. They're thoughtful like that.
But when Stacey Solomon – British singer and TV presenter – shared a photo recently of her in the bath with her two sons, she caused a social media storm with critics suggesting there was something wrong with a mum bathing with her children.
Stacey shared the snap of herself, Zachary, 9, and Leighton, 5, in the bath to celebrate UK Mother's Day.
Bare Thoughts: There's nothing wrong with bathing with your kids, other than letting in the opinions of those that seek to sexualise it. Parents don't need to stress, kids will decide when they are no longer comfortable.
