What is bath time like in your house? I’ve written about bath time many times, with everything from establishing a good bath time routine, to the fantasy vs reality of bath time with children.
I’ve said before that bathtime can be bonkers in our house, but at least non of the children are afraid of water! Quite the opposite…I’m sure they are all fish really!
If you’ve lost all hope of bathtime ever being that tranquil part of the day you once imagined, embrace the chaos – buy bath crayons, silly toys, mouldable foam and just roll with it we say!
How is bath time in your house at the moment?
Our problem has almost always been struggling to get the children OUT of the bath, or shower for that matter. I know that lots of parents struggle with the opposite though and have problems getting children to get INTO the bath or shower. Add to that, the problems that many parents face with potty training, tooth brushing and hand washing and things can get pretty stressful for parents at times.
Play is often a really good way of dealing with issues like this. When one of our children went through a phase of not wanting to brush his teeth, or have us do them for him, we got him brushing one of his toy dinosaurs teeth. When he got concerned that the dinosaur had more sparkly teeth than him, tooth brushing was not nearly so difficult.
