Awkward bathing other people's kids

I'm a babysitter and there's one family that tells me their kids need a bath before bedtime. So far I haven't done it and instead made the bathtub and towels wet to pretend they got a bath. But I feel bad and I'm worried they'll figure out what I'm doing.

Is It Normal?

  • Lol!!!

    Tell them the truth and confess to them that it makes you uncomfortable. I just hope you're not babysitting them every night, because children need baths eventually or they'll get sick.

    • I agree with you!!

      If you just not use to the whole " bathing the kids" thing, then just do it one time and check if it's really that bad. If it is, then just confess to the parents and tell them you don't feel comfortable doing it. You have rights to.

  • If you think that's awkward try bathing some kids you just met at the playground.

  • Discuss your concerns with the parents. I am sure they would be understanding of your situation and maybe a simple "ah its fine dont worry about it!" from the parents might be all you need to overcome this problem.

  • Why would you do that? There is nothing wrong with the bath! Just be careful and not leave the bathroom if they are very young, you don't want anything bad happening to them

  • Just have them take their bath and towel them off and put them to bed. What is wrong with that?

  • I hate to say it, but you shouldn't be a babysitter if you can't bathe the kids. That is part of the job, it isn't just making sure they don't die. It is keeping them healthy. But don't lie to the parents about it. That is really quite terrible on a few levels. Now if the child is handicapped and entering puberty, that would be understandable. But if it is a 5 year old...just run the water and make sure they don't drown. They can wash themselves.
