Do you let your child shower or only baths?

My son likes to shower but I have to help him wash his hair. He's pretty good at cleaning the important parts, with a little coaching.

  • My son, who is 4 decided right before his 4th b-day in October that he was done with baths. I need to help him quite a bit but it is better than fighting him to get him to wash his hair.
