Tips to make bath time easier

  1. Make bath time a part of a bed time routine. A routine will help your child know what’s happening next.
  2. Give your child some warning before bath time to allow them to finish what they are doing and prepare for bath time.
  3. Let your child be involved in bath time, pouring the shampoo or the water so they feel they are in control.
