I would like to assure all of you, up front,  that I am not  snooping through bathrooms across the land.  I do not generally inspect anything in other people’s homes.  I did, however, recently have the opportunity to be a house guest, staying  with some very clever people.  When I went to take a shower, I found this list in the shower.  It was impossible not to notice it; and once I figured out what it was, I couldn’t help but crack up!  So funny, and such a great idea.  I asked for permission to mention it on my blog, because it’s a fantastic parenting idea.  Permission was granted.  Again, rest assured that I don’t put things on my blog without permission from whoever is involved.

This list is the directions on how to shower, written by my brother David, and especially helpful for the 8 to 13 year old group of kids.  They want privacy, but don’t necessarily do a thorough job of cleaning.  I especially appreciate the unisex nature of  the “equipment”, and the way David would crack the door while Riley  was in the shower and ask which number he was working on, to keep things on track.   Now that’s some clever parenting.

  1. YAY! We did something similar to this for a while with Noah. We took it down when we moved but I’m thinking it’s time to put it up again. He often comes out of a 30 min shower only partially clean. Glad I’m not the only one who has kids that need step by step instructions on how to shower! :)
