This has been a really tough year for my daughter. She is in the 8th grade, and personal appearance is really important to those around her but not her. She is very slow to get up in the morning, & to avoid the arguments, I used to dress her. Well, word got back to her teacher, & she threw a fit. So, I've worked harder at being less involved in the mornings, although I'm still involved. Yet, there are still problems. She doesn't comb her hair nice and doesn't care if her breath stinks. I would let this go so long as the task got done. Well, after a complaint from the teacher, my husband wants me to brush her hair for her & watch over her, while she brushes her teeth to supervise what she does. I'm sure it's the Vanilla toothpaste. No odor killers there. Still, this gets so frustrating. How do other parents deal with this and does it ever end? What will grown up life be like for her? I think pretty much my husband & I feel we will need to buy her a home, & she will probably receive disability. Not sure if she'll be able to have much of a normal life.
