Any ideas on how to get my 10 year old daughter to take a little more pride in how she looks. I really hate to say it, but if I don't pick her clothes out, tell her to comb her hair and brush her teeth, she would go around looking like a sloppy dork. This is a daily thing. During the school week, the clothes are not an issue because they wear uniforms. She gets mad if I try and do something with her hair to try and make it look nice. She really doesn't have any close friends that would help influence her into wanting to dress and look nice. I really think that part of it is that my once energetic girl is becomming lazy. Any ideas. I this just a phase or a sign of how she will always be?
