For those of you whose kids shower independently how long do they take? What the average amount of time they're in the shower? DD 9 takes an hour from beginning to end - getting ready, showering, putting lotion on, and combing her hair. I'm not sure why she takes so long. She's actually in the shower about 15 minutes. Any used on how to get her to speed things up a little?
ETA: 15 minutes in the shower is normal. The reason I'm asking is because she complains that she doesn't have time to do things she wants to do - while she's doing all this her brother, who has already finished everything, is watching TV and she wants to watch too. I would understand if she's primping or something, but she's really not. She takes a long time to do most things. So we were talking about how she can take a little less time when she showers. She gets everything ready a head of time.
I also always shower quickly and don't take much time to get ready, so maybe it just seems like a long time too, because I never take that long - with hair and makeup included.
Thanks for your advice!
