Easy To Learn

Since a bidet facilitates very easy cleaning, it won’t be all that hard to learn.  In fact, the convenience of a bidet will probably make the whole process easy.  There’s no toilet paper to wipe with and no difficult areas to reach into.  Just teach them what buttons to press to get clean and it’s done.

The Bidet Is Not A Toy

That’s a lesson that you’ll probably need to repeat a dozen or so times.  Kids are naturally playful and curious, so a contraption with buttons and dials is automatically a source of amusement.  Once they discover the gushing water that spouts, seats that heat up and air that magically blows, it’s not too far-fetched to imagine the bidet-fitted toilet bowl as a setting for the next superhero battle.  Needless to say, it’s doesn’t seem all that palatable to have your kid turning the toilet into a playground for an extended amount of time.

Teaching Hygiene

When you teach your children about a bidet, make sure to point out that it’s a lesson about hygiene.  Bidets are great pieces of technology that allows you to stay fresh, smell good and avoid bacterial infections that can result out of improper cleaning.
