Do your kids bathe once a day? every other day?

And if they do bathe once a day, do you have them do it regardless of whether they go outside or get dirty at all?

  • both my kids have fair dry skin...so because of that they bathe every other day....the only way they bathe every day is if they are outside playing and get sweaty and dirty...

  • I usually bathe my 2 together every night unless I'm just too tired then I'll skip a night.

  • My 8 and 9 year olds I have bathe/shower every other day - every day if they play outside and get dirty. My 11 year old showers every day. My 9 month old I wash every other unless we go outside to play or go swimming.

  • My son takes a shower every other night. He took one every night last week because he was out at camp everyday.

  • My son gets a bath every night regardless of what he does.. There is no way i'm sending him to bed without a bath even if he's in the house all day long.

  • I have two tweens a teen and preschooler. During the summer they shower every other day unless they are outside and get real dirty. During school they shower every night no exceptions!! My teen showers everyday and sometimes twice a day.

  • *sigh* I'm lucky if I gan get my tween (ds11) to shower 4 times a week; I'd like it to be every day. He is beginning to develop that "teen boy funk", but he figures that if he can't smell it, it isn't that bad. He doesn't understand that it's hard to smell your own body odor. I certainly hope we turn the corner on this issue during the first semester. If anyone has ideas on this, feel free to contact me.
