How to Raise a Boy Tip #324- Boys Need Baths

Landon has been through so much with his surgery and now physical therapy I need to give him time to just BE.

I think all kids need that. Too much scheduled stuff and homework can just make their heads spin. Not to mention negative influences around everywhere.

I am telling you I don't think people really understand that keeping your kids young, innocent and full of wonder is tough in this world!

I work hard at it.

One of the ways I do this? A bath.

Oh I know. You are excited when kids are finally showering, on their own and there's one last thing on the to do list, BUT, kids (boys especially) need time in the bath. They need to zone out, lay in their and contemplate and have one second when their not running, talking or trying to play on some electronic device!

Landon and Coco both still take baths, it's their alone time. They each take baths separately and take their time playing and relaxing. I don't rush them. Whens the last time you didn't rush your kid?

Baths are where it's at I'm telling you. Try it and see.

I agree! My teenager is finally coming around to the idea after avoiding baths for a few years.

Yes! I completely agree! It's a beautiful time for them, and for me to linger close by to chat or fetch a new washcloth, or whatever….
