I'm out of ideas to get this child in the bath. She has NEVER liked taking a bath.....screamed as a baby & fusses/fights it now! I've tried different toys (she really doesn't play with toys though). I've tried kitchen cups/bowls/pitchers, foam letters, bath glitter/paints/crayons/foam......tons of bubbles...anything to get her in there. Her only interest is babydolls.....tried 3 new "bath" dolls over the past year (each lasted about 10 minutes = 3 baths....not gonna work). Radio, nope. Singing, nope (she tells me to be quiet!LOL). I am/was prepared for the preteen/teenager "funk" for easy child...knowing they can be lazy & not care much about personal hygeine (I'm hoping he skipped over all that & I don't have to deal with it). But, how in the world am I suppose to keep difficult child half way clean for the next "however many" years if I can't get her in the bath???? It "was" a bit easier when she was smaller.....just plop her in there & let her scream. She's getting too big....much harder. It was so bad last summer.....husband & I would put her in the pool in the evening or spray her with the hose & add soap! Any ideas? Anyone else have bath issues with difficult child?
