Trick your kid to shower
Yelling after your little one to wash up but he still refuses to? Many parents can’t seem to figure out why their kids hate taking a bath so much and are ridden with the troubles of getting their child to shower.
Let your child choose his own soap
What could be more fun than picking your own mint scented, strawberry flavoured or chocolate smelling shower wash? Let your kid experiment with interesting soap flavours that are sure to entice even the most difficult brat into a bath. The best part? Your kid comes out smelling great.
No kid can resist a bubble bath. If you have a bathtub at home, turn on a warm shower and add some bubble bath into the wash. If it makes your child more willing to step in the bath, you could also try fun bubble bombs that fizz in the water to create the best smelling bubbles.
Fun bathroom equipment
Remember that rubber ducky that junior once bugged you to buy? Maybe it’s time to get some fun water toys that make showering more appealing for the little one. Try out rubber toys, colourful sponges and even waterproof glow sticks! If you’re a little adventurous and don’t mind the bathroom getting wet, a water gun would be a great selling point for the grubby child.
Make it a routine
Set bath time the same time every night and be firm about it. Once you ensure that it’s non-negotiable that your kid heads to the shower at a certain time daily, it will gradually become a habit for them and you won’t need to continuously coax him into the bath.
When all else fails
If none of these carrot dangling methods work, it’s time to use the stick. One proven way to get your kids in the bath is by scaring them with what happens if they don’t bathe. Pictures of lice and dirt work wonders and your child becomes eager to shower so that the grime doesn\'t stay on him.
