It's very frustrating. You give the child the tools to brush teeth, hair, wash hair, etc., and she does it but not satisfactorily. I stay out of it. As long as she's independent, I try to let alone. Still, at times, I'll look at her hair and see that it's oily and not brushed very well. It makes me as a parent look bad, but then, if I do things for her, that's bad too. She hates showers. She hates brushing teeth. If I didn't remind her, she wouldn't do any of it. So, what do we do when we have teenagers who aren't concerned with his/her appearance? She doesn't notice either when clothes look too tight or frumpy on her either. Sometimes, I have problems identifying things like this myself, I'm so busy with every thing else.
