Mum sends six kids to school without letting them have their bath because she can't kill herself

We all know how busy parents can be but for one single mum she has come up with an unusual way to save time - letting her kids wash just three times a week.

Constance Hall said it's fine for her brood to go to school being "stinky" as "it won't kill them".

The mum-of-six, who is an Australian blogger, said she's had to cut a few corners because of her large family.

She also saves time on the washing-up by letting her kids "feast with the hands".

Revealing her short cuts on Mama Mia , she admitted her children don't wash every day.

She said: "They don’t have to bath or shower every day.

"They can quite often skip that part of the routine if it’s getting everyone down. I’m like, “Fine, stinky, go to school and gross everyone out”.

"I personally can’t be f**ked bathing everyone every night."

Justifying her decision to let her kids skip a daily wash she claims the American Academy of Dermatology said that youngsters aged between six and 11 only need to bath once or twice a week unless they are dirty, sweaty or have a skin condition.

"I know it makes them look more loveable when they are all clean and smell fresh, but really, skipping a night bath or morning shower a couple of times a week won’t kill them, " she added.

"None of my kids ate anything healthy under seven, they all eat well over seven and they are perfectly healthy."

Other parenting advice she dishes out includes having picnics, using coloured-coded buckets to "chuck" each child's clothes in, having a "check-out" time where you can relax and  blocking out her kid's noises by donning headphones.

She said: "I can’t respond to the 400 questions a day by six different kids: the fights over whose turn on the iPad it is, or who ruined what. I just can’t. So I block it out."

  1. She is not saying anything new white people dont shower every day. Especially during winter. She is just teaching them the way it has been done for many years.
