My daughter has younger brothers but is by no means a "tomboy." I have to remind her to brush her teeth, put deoderant on, and so forth. I feel as if she is at the age to not only understand she needs to do these things but she should WANT to. I tell her :go take a shower" she says things like "i took one two days ago" or "later" or "cant I wait until tomorrow?" I did not raise her to disregard the importance of cleanliness so I do not know where her actions come from. She does not care if her clean clothes are hung up or put in drawers, if her room is clean, if her toys are kept nice, or if her bed sheets are clean. Please do not get me wrong, She is an amazing girl, beautiful, and is well like by school mates, teachers, and even "boys". I just dont understand why she does not take more pride in cleanliness, organization, and her overall health.Anyone have Ideas or personal experience?
