Is it weird to light fancy candles for a four year olds bath?

Weird. I can see why someone might think they'd do it to try and ingratiate themselves with a child, something fun, like playing at being grown up, but it's totally off the mark.

I had been thinking about it for a little while but as soon as I posted it I talked myself down and decided I was being silly and would be told as much.

But that's good that it's not just me.

Obviously the intention behind it is good, they smell nice and he obviously thinks it adds something.

But it's just a little bit off, isn't it? Something you'd do for an adult, in a romantic relationship imo. Just made me feel a bit weird and I couldn't place why.

You're overthinking this. It's a candle, nothing more, nothing less.

I wouldn't do it but my children are bonkers vas would try to set fire to the plastic ducks.

Kids are sensitive to atmosphere. Candles are nice. What's the problem?

I just wouldn't want my 4 year old near fire! Nothing more, nothing less.

As stated, I just found it a bit weird claraschu

So who was planning the candles, you, but you've thought better of it...or someone else and you thought it was odd? I think it's odd, kids of that age like playing in the bath, splashing about, not a good idea around lit candles!

I have candles around my bath. For me. Sometimes the kids ask me to light them when they're in my bath and I do coz, why not? Do I routinely light candles for my kids' baths? Hell no. But I don't really see a problem with it either.
