In the bathroom, the goal is helping your child develop good hygine routines while remaining safe. Below, a mirror has been placed at the child's level as well as a step stool for her to reach the sink. There is a hook at the child's level for her towel as well as a basket (to the left of the towel) containing her bathroom toys.
While toilet learning, the child could have their own potty in the bathroom or one that is fitted to the adult toilet and use the stepstool. Be sure that the stool is light enough for the child to move by themselves as well as sturdy enough to hold the child and not tip over.
We found a cute little two minute timer in the kitchen section for our children to use while brushing their teeth. Some electric toothbrushes have automatic timers built in.
Any activity in the bathroom must be modeled to the child, isolating the key points of interest. For example, when washing your hands key points are; using warm water, one squirt of soap, rubbing your hands for the entire alphabet song, rinsing thoroughly, turning off the water, and drying your hands at the end.
Be sure to set the water heater at a maximum of 120F, to prevent your child from burning themselves.
