I don't want to hurt her feelings but she really needs to care about her appearance/hygiene, she's a pre-teen and we all know at that age comes more need to be "clean"... It just seems like she could care less about it! Her hair is always a mess, she doesn't care half the time about whether or not her clothes are clean, she doesn't wash her hands, she hates brushing her teeth, she "forgets" to put deodorant on... I've done everything to try to instill in her that these are all important things but .. as you can see no help. Her doctor says it may be because of her ADHD but I don't know, any other mom's having trouble?
