Hi Betty, I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who absolutely hates having a bath. Initially she used to scream just when she had her hair washed but now she is very anxious about even getting in to the bath. Most of the toddlers I know enjoy their bath time, playing with toys etc but she cries and screams throughout the whole process now refusing to play with any of her toys and asking to get out the minute she is in. We have tried distracting her with talking about other things, encouraging water play and of course have gotten cross with her for the ongoing performance but this makes it worse. This has been going on now for about a year but has gotten progeressivey worse over this time. We aren`t sure why she dislikes it so much and wondered if you had any ideas about what it is and if you had any tips to help making bath time a more enjoyable experience for all concerned!
