When I was a kid, I hated taking shower and getting wet. I wish my mother had been this witty that I would have run to the bathtub at a great speed. I was a kid who loved to stay stinky, grimy, and sweaty, showers were something I hated to the core of my heart. So now let me help you with all such problems with these tips and tricks:
Schedule the shower sessions according to your kids mood
Children really don’t like taking showers when you want them to; instead they love to go by their own time. It is especially in the mornings that children resist the bathtub, what you can do is change the timing to evening or night. This way not only you are letting your child go according to his wishes but also spending more time with him as evenings are majorly chaos less.
Water is all about playing
We all love playing with water, Don’t we? Similarly kids too love to play splashing water games while taking showers. All we need to do as parents is to let them enjoy the bathing time as their recreational time. Let them have their share of fun by having small water fights and making them love the bathing session.
Toys are a child’s best friend and should be allowed in the bathroom
Believe me if my mother would have let me get my toys in the shower, I would have jumped right in. Similarly, make sure that you let your child have his set of fun by having his tiny water toys while bathing. All you need to do for those few minutes is forget about the rage and be a kid on your own and then just play and spend quality time with your adorable baby.
Let him be all artistic
Go and buy those washable paints and water colors for your little ones. Let them color all the walls of your bathroom and explore their creative side. This is no doubt a fun way of taking a shower and needs no extra cleanliness.
Convert your bathtub into a swimming pool
