Bath, not wanting one

My child fusses and whines when I announce bath time. She doesn’t co-operate at all, and I usually end up yelling while I drag her to the bathroom.

Think about it

Take a minute to stop and think about why your child doesn’t want to take a bath. Is it because she’s having too much fun doing other things and doesn’t want to stop? Is it because bath time usually includes a battle of wills? Is it because she always gets soap in her eyes? Once you figure out the real reason, you can take steps to move past the problem.


1. Allow your child to use bubble bath or kid’s bath foam to make it more fun. Buy a few exciting bath toys, and use plastic kitchen products for play in the bathtub. Allow your child to play for a while before washing up.

2. If your child fears getting soap in her eyes when you wash her hair let her wear swimming goggles or a plastic sun visor while you wash her hair.

3. Be very consistent. Have a bath every other day at exactly the same time. Specific routines can overcome resistance after they have become regular occurrences. Let your child know ahead of time that bath time is nearing. If you give a few warnings –“Bath time in ten minutes” or “Bath time in five more minutes” – your child will respond better than if you just drop the bomb in the middle of fun activity.

4. Bath time is often done at bedtime, when a child and the parent are tired and grumpy. Change your routine and let your child shower or bathe first thing in the morning, when everyone is fresh and energetic.

5. Use the “When/Then” technique to promise something fun after the bath is done: “When your bath is done, then we can watch your new cartoon movie.”

6. If your child is age six or older, tell her that you think she’s grown up enough to handle her own bath. Take her through the steps the first time, let her run the water, gather her supplies, and handle the bathing herself, with your supervision. When you’re confident she knows what to do, let her do it while you sit in the next room close enough to monitor her by peeking in and listening. Many children love to “surprise” you when they walk out freshly cleaned and in their pajamas.
