My daughter is 11 years old and it is a fight with her everyday to brush her teeth, brush hair, flush the toilet, change her underware, even wipe after going to the bathroom and a few other things. My question is how do we get her to take better care of herself? We have tried adding it to her weekly chores and deducting allowance, that doesnt work, we have talked to her numerous times about how important it is and we have tried letting her be a slob but it has begun to relfect how we look as parents. We really need some suggestions, we don't want her to start middle school in the fall and be made fun of. Please help!
