A woman has revealed she refuses to let her husband bathe their young daughters ‘because they have different body parts’. And she believes boys she only be bathed by their dad.
The Queensland mother took to social media on Monday to discuss her ‘bath ban’ saying: ‘I just don’t feel comfortable for a man to do this’.
‘So hubby is upset with me because I have told him that I don’t (want him to) wash our two daughters in the bath or shower,’ she said.
The Queensland mother said she had no problem with her husband bathing their young son because ‘he’s a boy‘, writes Daily Mail.
‘I just believe that girls should be getting washed by their mothers and boys get the same from their fathers,’ she said.
‘It’s just got to do with the fact that mum and daughters have the same parts, same goes for men and their sons.’
She said her husband was upset and offended by her ban.
‘Hubby thinks I think ill of him, but it’s always been this way for me,’ she said.
The woman said she didn’t want her children to ever worry about whether they were molested or not.
‘People play the “I was molested card” so very often these days, I just don’t want in any way to give my kids the chance to even think about that,’ she said.
Her post was met with mixed reactions. With many concerned she is placing stigma on something that really shouldn’t be a concern.
So even as a mum she would never bathe her own baby boy? That is terribly sad.
Last year a dad received abuse for posting a picture on social media of him and his toddler daughter taking a bath together. Read more.
Do you think she makes a good point? Or is this totally ridiculous thinking?
