This post brought to you by Sterling. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Taking Time for Mommy.
1. Give them a ten minute warning. They aren’t caught off guard and can finish up what they are doing.
2. Make it fun – Bath toys, bubbles, soap crayons – you name it. Even though the girls are tweens they still love it.
3. Let them pick out soaps and shampoos. – This helped a lot with getting the girls in the bath. They couldn’t wait to try their new scents
4. Create a routine. If they know bathtime is at a specific time it is easier to get them in there. Especially if they know t.v. and /or reading time is afterwards. They more time they take fighting a bath the less time they have for personal free time.
5. If they are old enough let them take a shower. My girls are more likely to want to get cleaned up if a shower is involved. It is easier to wash their hair and take a lot less water and a lot less time. (see above).
I love showers too and appreciate a good sliding door. Sterling Prevail has a great sliding door, it is on a flexible track, which is comfortable and easy to clean (Got to love that!).
