Should Dads Be Allowed To Bathe Their Young Daughters?
A Queensland mother has taken to Facebook to post about her ‘bath ban’ that she has imposed on her own husband which stops him from bathing their two young daughters in the bath or shower.
In the status posted on Monday, she’s said: “I just don’t feel comfortable for a man to do this”. She also wrote “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.”
However, the mother does say that she has no issues with her husband bathing their young son because “he’s a boy”. She firmly believes that, “girls should be getting washed by their mothers and boys get the same from their fathers,” due to the fact that, “mum and daughters have the same parts, same goes for men and their sons.”
Another reason she gives behind her ban is, “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 it.”
Her post has been met with various reactions with most people slamming her for treating her partner like a paedophile.
The woman’s ban has definitely sparked a flame of discussion amongst people online and social media users have flocked to various sites to air their opinions.
So she basically doesn't trust her husband with her daughters? Great marriage right there.....— DJ (@CharleeGirl) December 18, 2017
I think that's going overboard. The woman's lost it. She's depriving that father from a bonding experience with his little daughter wake up woman not every man is a pedophile. Give the poor father a break— fed up_politics (@ifergitme_fedup) December 18, 2017
