Why is my child afraid of showering?

Warum hat mein Kind Angst vorm Duschen?

Why are so many children afraid of showering? 🤔 This is a question that many parents ask themselves when their little ones suddenly run away from the bathroom.

Where does the fear of showering come from? 🤷‍♀️

There are many reasons why children may develop a fear of showering. Here are some common causes:

1. The unknown: Children often don't like changes or innovations in their daily routine. The shower can be something unknown and unpredictable for them, which can trigger anxiety.

2. Noises and splashes: The sound of water splashing and the feeling of water on the skin can be frightening for some children, especially if it occurs unexpectedly and they cannot control the shower jet, for example.

3. Negative experiences: An unpleasant shower experience in the past, such as getting shampoo in the eye, can make children fear showering.

4. Sensitive skin: Children with sensitive skin may find the feeling of water on their skin uncomfortable - especially if the shower jet is too strong, which can lead to shower anxiety.

5. Phases of development: During certain developmental phases, children can develop fears that can also affect showering. These phases are often temporary.

6. Fearful role models: Children are very impressionable and can inherit fears from their parents or siblings. If they see that someone in the family is afraid of showering, they can adopt that fear.
