  • They both shower everyday . Wash their hair everyday too. I make sure of that. Some kids bring lice to school and I need to make sure she is always clean and check her hair too ... am I a bit pyscho ? you bet!

  • My kids play hard and get FILTHY!  NOBODY ASK ME WHERE THE DIRT COMES FROM CAUSE I DONT FREAKING KNOW!  ;)  They get food all over themselves and my 1 year old is ALWAYS getting sticky!  There is no choice but for them to get a bath everynight, lol.  They have to wash their hair every night when they take a bath/shower because they will WIPE THEIR HANDS IN THEIR HAIR!  Ha, ha!

  • My daughter is 7. I try to get her in every day, but it doesn't always happen. My 5 year old son takes one every other day.

  • FYI - amparoortega. Showering and washing hair is not going to get rid of lice!! They like clean hair!

  • My son has to take a shower every night, I wash his hair b/c/ it is really short and I wash it with his face
    My daughter takes a shower every other night, she is 3 and doesn't play as hard, we are black, so I only wash her hair once a week or so (depending on the style it is in)

  • No, it is not necessary for young children to bath everyday in the wintertime. My dd has eczema and it would just irritate her.

  • My girls have really bad eczema so during the winter months I bathe them every other day and it is very short sweet and to the point! If they soak for extended periods of time, the skin becomes horrific!!
