Mum doesn't think dads should bathe daughters

A mother has sparked outrage online after she explained that she wasn't comfortable with her husband bathing their daughters as they "have different body parts".

The Queensland woman, whose identity we are keeping anonymous, posted her thoughts on social media where she explained why she felt dads shouldn't wash their young girls.

Originally reported in the Mail Online, the woman wrote: "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.

"I just don't feel comfortable for a man to do this."

She continued: "I have said I don't have any issues with him bathing our son as well, he's a boy. I just believe that girls should be getting washed by their mothers and boys get the same from their fathers."

The woman went on to explain that her husband was offended by the suggestion but that it was just how she has always done things.

The controversial post was met with a mixed response from other social media users, but the majority of readers disagreed with her point of view.

One said: "You have more than a few screws loose, you shouldn't even be thinking like that putting your partner in the same category as a child sex predator."

While another added: "This post says a lot about how you see yourself and your negative way of life."

A third person pointed out the potential issues this rule would pose in a single parent family.

They said: "What about single parents? Should they not bath their son or daughters in case they molested them?"
