shower 2gether?

hi doc!hope you are well! my son is three years old and i have a shower with him every day in the evenings. i would just like to find out if it appropriate or not - and when should this stop. the reason i have a shower with him is it gives us a bit more quality time together as he is at school!
thank you kindly

You don't need to have a shower with your son to have quality time with him.When he is 4 years old it will definitely not be appropriate any more, but I would advise you to stop now.

I dont see why there is such a taboo about parents/kids being naked in the same room.

I saw my parents nude up till the age I left the house and I am perfectly well adjusted. My kids were brought up the same and they well adjusted.

People make too much of a big deal about it.
