When do you let your child groom and bathe himself? At two years of age, a child can start to "help" out in brushing his teeth and taking a bath. By "help" I mean, an adult basically does all the brushing and bathing. The child only goes through the motion. Start teaching a child the rudiments of grooming and bathing at the earliest age possible. Ethan was all excited when I told him one night that he can take a shower all by himself. He was five then. So off he went to get his Elmo bath towel while I set the shower's water temperature. He stepped on the shower stall, went under the shower, and started shampooing his hair. I was in the bathroom's perimeter, "supervising". I took a peak and saw a grin plastered on his face. Then suddenly, a piercing scream! Ethan! I ran to the bathroom and was met by darkness. The bathroom lighting conked out! It scared Ethan thus the panicked screaming. Ethan's "first" shower proved to be memorable. It was a "shower with candle light".
