Mom explained why she continues to take baths with her 10 and 11-year-old sons
A mother opened up about why she didn't feel anything about taking a bath together with her young sons.
Lauren Libbert explained that bathing together with her 10-year-old and 11-year-old sons was completely natural and they weren't ashamed of or uncomfortable about acknowledging each other's bodies.
According to Metro, the mother spoke during an interview about her lifestyle that they all take a bath together once every week if "the children are happy with it."
Despite the widespread criticism she received because of her action, Libbert defended her decision by claiming that her boys are comfortable with her being naked and them being naked around her.
Who needs bath bombs when you have kids? Tonight's bath was infused with spaghetti sauce. I love co-bathing 🤣— meghan brown (@meglovinit) April 27, 2017
She further claimed that it was something they did around the house and was very normal for them. She further reacted to the outrage against her by stating that what she does was completely "normal."
"What can be more natural than wandering around, in the privacy of your own home obviously, and being naked? Being what we were born with?" the source quoted Libbert as stating.
She further told that there was nothing to be ashamed of as it was a very natural activity for the family and they were happy about it. She also questioned about people feeling shameful about their bodies, and wondered why they feel the need to hide it.
Meanwhile, a guest on ITV's This Morning show, Ben Edwards, revealed that Libbert's action may be damaging the sexual development of the children in the future.
He also stated that being naked was not about body-shaming or being unnatural. It was more about the confusion that it would cause and affect the developing minds of the children.
However, Libbert is determined that there is nothing wrong with what she is doing. She has also explained that she would gladly stop bathing together with her sons if ever any one of them were to feel uncomfortable about it.
