My son is 15 and is forgetful. Forgets to brush teeth, forgets to wash his hands regularly, forgets to do chores, etc. I'm worried that he is a bit slow on responsibility and self care. A teacher once even went so far to tell me that he was absent minded. I don't want his self esteem affected but I'm running out of ways to encourage him to remember and be more independent with these small everyday tasks.
