I don't have children, but I do have a 6 year old half-sister who is being raised by her father and my mother. Her father is 47 and our mother is 51. They are raising her in a way I do not believe is right, but to each their own. I'm posting this to get other perspectives, and if anyone agrees in what I describe below, please tell me why you agree. I guess you could say my step-dad and mom are very 'open' minded people. They are swingers, and proud of it. My mother was very prudish and strict while raising me, so this came to a shock to all of us when this was discovered a few years ago. I guess you could say she completely changed her lifestyle when she met her new husband. So, that aside, they don't close the bathroom door when they're on the toilet, they walk around naked freely, and they ALL take BATHS TOGETHER. Every night my step-dad will take an hour long bath with his 6 year old daughter. She has asked her mother to join them if she's around. Does this seem odd to anyone else? Is this ok? Do europeans or other cultures do this? It just seems very very odd to me, and in a way, wrong.
