Is bathtime a battle?
We asked our Facebook fans if their bathtime rituals with the kids are a struggle. Read what they had to say and add your thoughts.
If you're lucky enough to have a kid who loves to bath, then congratulations! For some though, bathtime is not fun. Kicking, screaming and fighting is how some parents spend their evenings.

We took to Facebook and asked our fans 'Is it a fight to get your kids to bath, brush teeth and so on?'

Here's what they had to say:

Not bathing or going to bed, but brushing her teeth. It's such a mission. - Clarissa

No! We have the best kids ever. Without threatening them, or 'buying' them over, they would rush up the stairs for bathtime. Girl is 20 months old and on her second brush. She 'chews' them up. - Christo

My daughter refuses to get dressed after bathtime. I have to run after her and she thinks it's all a game. - Slindokuhle

My girls fight to get in the bath but once in, I have to fight to get them out. It's the hair washing they don't like. - Margo

No problems to actually do it, just the time it takes to get there! - Shelley
