  • Although I'm a female (and a clean one at that) I hated bathing when i was between 8 and 12. My mother had to beg me for hours. But I just grew out of it. Now I can't stand to go 1 day without a shower!

  • Yep, my boys were not fond of getting in the tub either until I found a body wash they liked. My boys like the smell of the Axe wash, shampoo and body spray- so now it is less fuss to get them to get cleaned up.

  • I did the same as MizLee and Lovelypisces. I let them pick their own bath stuff including bubbles, my 11 year old still fights me sometimes but hes also starting to notice girls.
