Do you just have the one bathroom?

My 4 all shower themselves daily. They are 10 down to 4, the 4 year old only just started (wants to be like the older ones) and then once a week they have a bath, older ones on their own youngest with me to help (so I can really wash her hair)grin
To be honest some days if they are really mucky they will end up have 2 or maybe 3 showers (depending on what time they get mucky) but in the evening it is a 15 min process and they are all done, one in finishes gets dry shouts for next. Yours may be more complicated with more children and teenagers, we always used to have at least 2 bathrooms (last house had 3 showers, 2 baths) but the house we are in at the moment is only 1 bath with overhead shower so that is why they all moved to showers.

My 13,11,9 and 8 yr old's shower alone, I check hair and make sure they have a proper deep clean grin once a week.

5 and 2 yr old usualy have a bath together in the evening, and the 9 and 8 yr old usually jump in after to play mermaids hmm.

I had an image of you all lined up down the corridor for the only bathroom. There's 5 of us & one bathroom & that's bad enough!

Up until a year ago we ony had a bath. When we moved and started usuing the shower I found it so much easier. I hated leaning over the bath to wash hair.
