My sister is in Europe for work, and Iím taking care of her boys. They are good kids, but I found it weird that they showered together, and even shampooed each other! Are multiples supposed to be this close?

They're all boys? Wouldn't bother me. But you could ask your sister.

As long as they aren’t feeling violated, I say it’s all good.

But then again, I think we tend to be a bit too uptight about nudity anyway.

But this is a small shower, and shampooing each other seems weird. I’m calling their Mom.

Showering together happens in a lot of situations and even with strangers of the same gender. I am not sure what is so concerning about triplets having very close relationships with each other. Since they shared a womb and pretty much had the same experience growing up together, it's expected that they will be closer than older/younger brothers. I am more concerned how OP knew that they're shampooing each other???

They told me that they shampoo each otherís hair, are you suggesting something else? They try to save time by showering together, so I understand that.

Again, I don’t feel it’s a big deal. Phone their mom, as you said, and go by her advice.

I don’t feel there’s much here to pursue, but I applaud you for at least being vigilant with children in your care.

ahh so you knew Jerry Sandusky?

While there are bath houses in certain cultures and they consider it a social privilege, I find bathing in close proximity to be uncomfortable.

How mature are these fellows in the sense of autonomy and awareness that they are still deserving of privacy ?

Bizarre post. Why do you omit their ages? Is there a soap on a rope?
