WFMW {Bathtime Battles}

By | May 27, 2009

This is my first time time to do Works for Me Wednesday. This week’s topic is Parenting Tip for Young Children. When my boys were younger they loved taking a bath, but neither of them liked getting out when it was time. In fact it got so bad with my first son that I came to dread bath time every night. One night I told him he should try to “beat the water.” We put it to a tune, “Beat the Water! Beat the Water!” He ended up putting other words to it, but for the life of me I can’t remember what they were. This was silly, but it worked to get them out of the tub quickly and they both got so excited when they could be dried off before the water drained out of the tub. You can apply this idea to many daily struggles by just making it into a little game.
