My oldest liked showers early on, but my 6 year old didn't like them until the summer before he started K. He also hated water in his eyes. Took a few times for him to get used to it, and now he always wants a shower.
my 3 yo dd and 5 yo dd both take showers never had a problem
My girls are 4 and 3 and love baths. My 9 year old takes showers.
At 6, she is old enough to wash herself in a bath, w/ maybe some help w/ her hair.
My kids started taking showers w/ us at 4 (dd w/ me, the boys w/ dh), and on their own at 6.
Both. He says he wants to take showers because they are faster. He doesnt get water in his eyes. He has hair to his waist so I make sure his hair is clean but he cleans the rest and rinses his own hair out I just check to make sure all soap is gone. I use to put my hand on his forehead and pour water his hair that way he wouldnt get anything in his face. It works and kids dont freak out with it.
Dd is 8 and does both...She prefers to bath..
Quoting steelcrazy:Both of my boys were taking showers by that age. A simple solution for water in the eyes is swim goggles.
