I started teaching my child around 15-18 months to wash her own private areas and by 2 she was fully washing her whole body.
She 3 now and barely needs my help at all in the tub. I put the shampoo and conditioner in her hair because she puts WAY to much, lol, but she'll scrub her hair, rinse out the shampoo and then rub the conditioner through her hair. I do help her rinse out the conditioner because it's thick and it takes some work to get out but I can't even remember the last time I had to help her wash her body.
A friend of mine said she still washes her 6 year old. This struck me as odd but maybe my daughter did things early??
How old was your child when they started washing themselves without help?
