I think it kind of happens naturally with socialization among other kids. I have a bizarrely long memory of my childhood, I remember the first time I started locking the door of the bathroom was when I was 4 or 5, because my older cousin did it. I asked my mom, “why did she lock the door? I was just going to put my wet pool clothes in the hamper there?” My mom said, “well, she’s getting older, and sometimes people need privacy.”
Well, that was it for me, I tells ya!
Same for my Dyl, he just started getting shy a while ago, same as yours @SleepyWill, they’re almost the same age.
Does anyone want to start an “Oh, F—k, We’re PARENTS Now?” thread in the off-topic? To talk about all the weird and gross things that we don’t normally talk about in public, because it would be disturbing to the muggles? We have a few “gaming with kids” threads, but not a straight up parenting thread. I’ve got a lot of plates spinning, or I’d do it myself (I may eventually if no one takes me up on this).
Also, and I know this sounds weird, I think we may be dominating this topic, the most off-topic of all the off-topics. This is here for everyone to blab about whatever (except for Religion, Politics, or Sports. Those topics cause innocent bystanders bloodshed).
