You could try telling them to take a bath and if they refuse tell them that they will stink and if they still refuse let them go without for that day and try again the next day and if they still don't want to then start telling them that they smell bad and you don't want their friends to think that they smell bad because no one likes to smell stinky smells. And just keep doing that until they finally decide, "mom was right, I do stink!" and take a shower. lol I don't have a 9 year old, my son is only 18 months old but I did have younger siblings that didn't like taking showers and it seemed to work for them.
