  • My daughter has always not liked it but I made it into a game. Like "I'm going to get you...hee hee hee" and chased her a bit and then attacked in a playful way. "Got you!" and just laughed. She would laugh too and her face would be clean. :)

  • Yes, my just-turned-two year old HATES it!

    But like azangie said, turn it into a game! I make up and sing a silly song about washing her face, and it helps her from screaming!

  • He's actually a pretty "clean" toddler for a toddler AND A boy.. he HATES having things food, dirt or crumbs on his face fingers or! which you think, well thats good, but try going to the park or having help him in the garden haha.. He's the cleanest toddler I know - he tells me all the time area's of my house that are "messy" or dirty - like, Mommy, your truck is dirty, we need to vaccum it or we need to sweep, the entry way is very messy - he's 2-1/2. lol!! the one thing he HATES is for his feet to be touched, like clipping his toenails wow!~
