Girls have to have baths to be clean!

I have a friend who is out of town 5 out of 7 days. She has one daughter who is 7 and stays with her dad. My friend is pitching a fit because she wants the girl to take a bath several times a week and the girl and father aren't sticking to it. She claims that girls don't get clean if they do t take a bath. I wondered what everyone thought of this.



Do you make your older daughter take a bath?

I'm sorry I was unclear. Yes she's taking showers but mom wants her to take baths

is she taking showers instead or just not bathing at all? When i was a kid taking baths used to give me bladder infections no clue why i don't get them now but when i was little i had to take showers. I think it's actually probably cleaner to take showers because you sit in the dirty water in a bath. I still like to take baths every now and then to relax though.

I guess I'm a dirty bird. I take showers.

As opposed to no bath at all, or as opposed to a shower?

Even if they take a bath, we sometimes rinse them off afterwards.

They switched to showers, though.

Yes but i think that's mainly if you're over puberty snd sexually active. The water can help to cleanse the vagina.

Right?  I mean, you're sitting in your dirty bathwater...your hair is not all that clean...unless you change the water in the middle of your bath...I'm thinking in disjointed phrases this morning...Showers are preferable...Purple.

Sometimes when I'm alone, I like to Google myself.
