Be often do your kids get baths/showers?

How old are they?
My son is 10 and at the age where he hates to shower! It's a battle everytime and I'm going to be honest he does not shower everynight! It's gross and his head stinks because he is a head sweater! Help me help him! My baby gets a bath every other day or when ever she does blow out poops!

  • 8, almost 7, almost 5, almost 3. Mon/Wed/Fri at the bare minimum, other nights as needed. During the summer they get one almost every night, depending what we/they do on a given day.

  • My DD is 2 and I give her a bath every single night, unless there is a special reason not to. Ie I don't bathe her most Friday nights because we stay up late and have movie night, and she just gets a bath Saturday morning. I feel disgusting sending her to bed w/o one.

  • Everyday, even as babies. I do not like stinky people even my own.

    I would than tell him to take a bath and if he dose not like that then tell him he will have to shower with you! That should change his mind.
