raising a girl...bra, shower, and deoderant question
My DD is 6, but sometimes seems like she is older than that.
I have been trying to get her to take showers instead of baths all the time. She doesn't really like them because she's afraid of the water....BUT if I get in the shower with her to show her how to do it, she's fine. Any suggestions?? I REALLY don't want to take showers with my daughter (I have body insecurities as well as it's just plain uncomfortable)
Also, my DH asked me when our DDs will need to start wearing bras. Back when I was young my mom didn't buy training bras until I started to develop...but we were also on the lower class and if she could have gotten away with it, probably wouldn't have bought me a bra (she was the mom who wouldn't allow me to take showers everyday because I was using the oil and raising the water bill :( so I don't have a very good 'example' on how to help a little girl) When did you start to buy your DD a bra? my DD is interested in them...but I don't want to push her to grow up...so I'm confused.
oh and....deoderant? She takes a shower/bath everyday but DH and I have noticed she may need to start wearing deoderant. When did you or your DD start to wear it and what kind did you buy her?
