How many parents here have Difficult Kids that refuse to shower? Ugh!! This is driving me up the wall! He will only shower twice a week, and even then we will have to remind him several times that he needs to shower, and he still complains about it. Several times he has asked to be able to use hair gel and to let his hair grow longer, but I have said no and told him that if he would be willing to wash his hair every day I would be willing to let him do these things. Last week he wanted me to hug him. I refused and told him that he stunk, but that I would be more than happy to hug him after he showered.
