How do I make my little boy sit down in the bathtub?

My husband doesn't mind him doing it but I think it's a safety concern) and my parents are mad because they think we let him do it.

  • yes it is a safety concern, give him plenty of toys. make baths quick, get the non slip mat or stickies for the bottom of the tub, and also PP advice is good too

  • My daughter learned quickly what "on the butt!" meant. She's only 13 months, and likes to try and stnd up. At first I would say, on the butt, and place her back down sitting and if I had to do it more than about 5 times bath time was over. Not she responds to just "on the butt" she smiles and laughs sometime, but still sits back down.
