    She doesn't like showering or bathing or she doesn't like being told WHEN to do it?

    An 11-year-old is old enough to decide when to shower or bathe. Setting specific times is really for small children who need their parents with them.  If that's the problem, just let the child know that a shower or bath is required once a day and let her decide when to take it.

    The child may also just object to being told all the time that she has to do this.  11-year-olds are on the cusp of adolescence and are likely to start asserting their independence. Perhaps you need to stop pushing the subject. Again, just say that the child needs to shower or bathe once a day and then leave it alone. 

    You might let the child pick out soap or body wash, her preferred products of an adult type, not designed for children.  11-year-olds are growing up. They don't need "bath toys"..

    Kids that invariably face such a dilemma usually have a poor upbringing!

    - Fear of water (yes thats real)

    - Just doesn't like it in general

    if you want her to like it then find techniques to make bath time and shower time more fun! use bath toys and bubbly soap, theres also a cool shower head that lights up with lots of colors!

    The answer is right there in your question.. '11 year old'.. There is no logical answer to a lot of things at that age..
