So has anyone come up with some tips for helping with difficult child's body odor and hygiene? If he was 4, I would put him in the bathtub and scrub him myself. Can't really do that with a 14 year old. What's the old saying - can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink? I can get him in the bathroom and I hear water running, but he is NOT cleaning himself. I even got down one day and looked under the door. I could hear water running, but could see his feet right there near the door. Since I mentioned it to him, he now puts a towel at the door so I can't see in. If he would just put half the effort into hygiene that he puts into NOT doing hygiene, we would all be better off.
