  • Maybe get her to pick out some nice shower gel, and a body wash poofy thing, new shampoo,conditioner, that will get her more interested in taking the time to do everything needed in the shower?

  • Tell her if she doesn't shower she will stink then get nasty bugs and no one will want to be near her nastiness.

  • Do you mean showers over a bath, or she wont sower/bathe at all? How old is she? I'd go with telling her how people smell bad when they don't bathe, and none of her friends will want to be around her if she stinks. Maybe cutting her hair shorter to cut down on shower time?

  • We have "races". I will use a stop watch and have them race to get clean. (I make sure they are clean before they get out and even help out with hair.) But they try to see if they can beat their siblings or beat their best record.
