I have a nine year old foster son who has never been shown the basic body hygiene. And I do mean the basic. He is a troubled little boy with a big temper and I am not sure of the best way to bring these up with him. Showing him how to brush his teeth, tying his shoes, putting on his underware the right way was not hard but I am finding it harder to explain how to wipe after going to the bathroom, taking a shower ( washing the right parts) etc... Does anyone have any suggestions

Do you think a book about how to care for your body might help???

I don't know of any but a book shop or library might be able to help you

There is an American Girl book for girls called The Care and Keeping of You.... I 'believe' there is a boy version as well.
