My 10 year old stepdaughter still has difficulty washing/bathing and selecting the right clothes. She recently got her period and we are having great difficulty with her remembering to change her pad or even noticing that she bled through her clothes and problems with general hygiene. Since getting her period this has become magnified. Any suggestions on how to get her to realize the importance of hygiene? I have talked to her about everything she should be doing but she seems to ignore it and not care about her appearance or cleanliness. I do realize she is young, but I don't want her to the child that no one wants around.
