What age do you think is suitable to leave your kids alone in the bath?? My little boy was four in march, so 4 & 4 months, and he is getting really iffy with me about privacy to go to the loo and getting dressed and stuff, and when its bath time, he has started telling me that he wants to be left alone....currently I will sit with him while the bath fills, then I leave and tell him Ill be back in a minute, and will be gone for say 1 minute, put on the washing or something, and then come back and check him...then go again (make beds or something) then come back and check... or if Im gone for more than about 1 1/2 mins, I call out to him as Im doing whatever job, and ask him if he's ok (our bathroom is central in the house, so you can hear or see him from any room)....this seems to be working ok...its a little freedom, but I still can see or hear him at all times...he realyl wants me to 'leave him alone'....what should I do? He never puts his head under water or anything, usually he will just float or play with his bath toys. Maybe I should start leaving him alone for little longer (say 2 or 3 minutes)???...what age did you leave your kids alone in the bath?? (Im so a- nal about this kind of thing, so thats why I need the advice!
) Thanks everyone!
