Last week’s Tuesday Topic on privileges for teens was great and I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts today. This week’s question is,
I have a child who suffered profound neglect in her early childhood. Now she is a preteen and her hygiene skills are abysmal. She does not seem to notice or feel mucous running out of her nose, crusty eyes, or food on her face. She refuses to do her hair and resists showering. It is difficult to share a meal with her due to her table manners; even after many years home, she often defaults to eating with both hands. I should add that she does not have cognitive delays that contribute to this problem. Do you or your readers have any suggestions that might help?
I am quite sure there are many of you who have ideas for our friend. Big or small, please leave a comment and share your thoughts.
If you have a question you would like presented as a Tuesday Topic, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Tuesday Topic” in the subject line. I’m low on topics/questions at the moment and would love to replenish my supply.
