The recovery rate of your water heater is too slow and the size of the tank is too small. If space allows you should increase the size of the tank. You may also want to install a high recovery water heater that is designed to heat faster.

Your children are using up all the hot water in the tank. You'll either need to limit the amount of time your children take a shower or install a larger tank in your home. Older hot water tanks take longer to recover water than the newer models do. If you can't afford a new tank then it is best to have your children take a shower 30 minutes after the first child took their shower. This will give your hot water heater a bit more time to recover and recycle the hot water.

This will happen when you use too much hot water and the cylinder will slow heating process. Sometimes it does happen in our house, when we use too much hot water and when we go to shower the hot water is very low and it doesn't even hot its warm. During the winter, it will more happen too because during this time we going to use hot water more often. And the cylinder can't keep upon it.What you have to do is used less hot water, you have to set it into lower hot temperature to avoid any burn. Only use recommended temperature of the water plus, using hot water too often will increase your electric bill.  The maximum level for water temperature is 60-70 Celcius degrees this will enough  kill the bacteria.

And also there might be a problem with your cylinder, you better get it check.

Kids don't like warm baths when the weather is hot, of course, they want a cold bath to refresh themselves. This is same goes with us. I think they will prefer warm bath or the mixture of hot and cold. Did you already tried it? Hot bad is irritable but it can loosen up some stress in their body and for sure, even if they perspire, all the hot feeling, the pain in the muscle and of course, stress will all be gone. I remember my nephew, he was bathe with warm water. He felt sleepy after because he felt tired already because of the hot bath experience. When he is bathe with cold water he is playful. Maybe that is their complains or problem. Better to ask your kids of what is the real problems and you go in the middle to solve this problem.
