What's a Safe Age to Let Kids Bathe Alone?

Safe Bath Time Age?

This question was submitted by member Betty Wayne in the The Mommy Club group.

So it's common knowledge that leaving a baby alone in the bath — even for a second — is a huge no-no. But, when is it safe? My little one is four-and-a-half, and I've been letting her bathe by herself. I'll stay nearby so I can hear her and I check in on her every couple of minuets. Is that safe? Should I wait even longer? She can wash herself and she's very mature (for four). What do you girls think? What age is safe?
