  • Nah. Don't do that. Let her pick out her own shampoo, soap, and loofah. Buy her some water crayons, Make it fun. Don't make it a fight. Set a timer and tell her that you bet she can't beat the timer and be clean. Each time she does she gets a treat. Maybe buy her favorite cookies and tell her dessert is after shower.

  • Take showers with her and let her know that you won't let the water hit her face. Point the shower head down as far as it will go and have her stand were it hits her lower back. Then just tip her chin back so only the top of her head goes in the spray.
