As your child gets older, encourage them to take the lead at bathtime. Ask them: “What will you need for your bath? A towel? Clean clothes” When they’re in the bath, you can ask, “What will you do first” Invite them to choose which body part to wash and do it together.

Encouraging your child to take the lead in daily routines shows them that you believe they can do things independently, which helps them feel confident and capable. This helps them to actively take on challenges and solve problems now and in the future.
