Scuba Steve, Scuba Sam, Getting Kids to Do What They Should

I saw a post the other day, by Mommy's Fabulous, titled "I Miss Steve." And while this post was really about kids' programming and the absence of Steve on Blue's Clues, somehow it made me think of Scuba Steve.

You know, the doll from Big Daddy?

Which then made me think of Adam Sandler's character dressing up as Scuba Sam, Scuba Steve's father, to get Julian (the kiddo) to take a bath.

There are so many things in life that we, as parents, try to teach our kids. I know that when my kids were small, bath time wasn't always the easiest. Heck, even now, it is difficult to tear them away from life to take a shower.
What are some of the biggest challenges you have had with teaching your kids good habits? Has anyone ever resorted to something as drastic as Scuba Sam?
