Get a Grip on Slips
Install grab bars in the tub and shower so no one slips and falls. Also, use non-slip mats or grip strips to prevent slipping and sliding in the shower.
Dry Off Before Stepping Out
It might seem like common sense, but make sure your child is in the habit of drying off completely before stepping out of the shower. Bathroom floors can be slick when they're wet, so always put a bath mat or rug down for traction.
