My kids won't drink water.

They refuse to drink water. They never really have. How can I get them to drink water? I know many of you will say "don't offer anything else". But I don't want them to get dehydrated in this 110 degree weather. Help me out.

O and before anyone says it....yes I am fully aware that the fact that they will only drink something with "flavor"is completely my fault. So save me that, please. I just need advice.

Make them drink water before they can have something flavored.

Have them crunch on some ice!

mix water and simply orange juice or apple together. That brand doesn't have all of the other ingredients that other 100% juice has. Gradually use less juice.

Why not give them water with a squirt of some kind of flavoring?

Water down juice. Keep watering it down until its all water.

My dd will only drink it if it's in her special water bottle.
What about getting them special sports/water bottles with their favorite character on them?

Offer only water -- they get thirsty enough they will drink.

Good luck
