Fan Question

Hi! I really need some help! I have a 2 year old little boy and from the time he was born, he has been terrified of water. Now with that said it makes bath time super hard and I have try everything I can think of, like not giving him a bath but a shower which he hates just as much like he fights me, screams everything like you are trying to kill him, I have tried letting him take his cars in the shower with him which doesn't work. I have tried making up a song also doesn't work, I have tried making the shower look cool again don't work. I am just trying to find something that I haven't done already. If you could be of any help or have any advice I will take it. And no, he has not had any bad stuff happen around water. TIA
