My 2 year old loves water and loves his baths but is terrified of the shower. When i gave my kids a bath tonight my toddler put the shower on on accident and he freaked out and dove into my arms. He refused to go back into the bath after that thankfully i already washed him. I just find that weird cause he loves water and will go into sprinklers and stuff but is just scared of the shower. Any other kids have weird things they are afraid?

my LO liked showers as an infant but stopped as a toddler. at 4 she is starting to like them again. every once in a while she'd be interested. I think it has a lot to do with the noise and splatter.

I think its pretty common for kids that age to be scared of showers. At least from what I've seen.

DD acts like a cat when you put her in the shower and she will be 5. she will claw her way out and everything..

idk its just weird cause he loves the splash playgrounds and runs through the water but wants nothing to do with the shower im hoping he will outgrow it
