When I nannied for a family, the mother allowed her 4 and 2 year olds to bathe together and play in the tub while she did some minor house cleaning on the same floor as the bathroom they were in. Even though the water level wasn't at dangerous levels, I thought the kids should still have constant adult supervision as in someone stay in the bathroom with them.


It really depends on the responsibility and maturity level of your chidren. It can be as young as 5, 6, 7, or as late as 8, 9, 10. It really all depends.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
