My 12 yr old is autistic and hates showering or bathing. It is a daily struggle for me.

You make them since you are the parent.

Take away the distraction. Video games, tv, phone, friends, freedom :upside_down_face: not only will they shower, they’ll do it without asking :laughing:

I just say shower :shower: and they listen. I’m not sure what I would do if they didn’t listen. Probably turn off the wifi.

Put ”your foot up their butt”.lol

Sounds silly, find what makes them tick, what they value. Then reward when you notice they make changes. Doesn’t have to be monetarily. More time on electronics, time with friends, words of affirmation. In the same token, if they don’t then take away the things the value. Turn off the wifi until they shower. Once done turn it on. If the odor is really severe you may need to look at diet. The odor is caused by bacteria. Keep that in mind. Good luck. Parenting isn’t easy. Just remain consistent.

Once my brother started liking girls, he started to want to take showers- several times a day. Moral of the story- it will eventually end because of girls

That’s basic hygiene like brushing their teeth. Make a chore chart they have to accomplish before electronic time. Although they’d likely need to shower at the end of the day, not the beginning.

Do nothing.

If they’re teens, that means that they’re in middle/high school. If you’ve talked to them about showering and personal hygiene and they won’t listen, let their peers tell them that they stink. That’ll change their attitude about it quick.

I have a son who’s almost 14. He showers, but wouldn’t wash his clothes. He would shower and wear the same hoodie over and over without washing it. I told him he had BO and he argued with me that he showers. After a friend of his pointed out that he smelled, he started taking better care of himself and his laundry.

That’s something that should have started at a young age to get them in routine. Just like brushing teeth & hair.

My oldest is almost 20 and only showers when he wants to. He works and still doesn’t shower often. We love him but he stinks. And this may pop up in his newsfeed since we are friends and I’m commenting but it’s the truth. I love that boy but damn he needs to shower more than once to twice a week. So if you figure it out let me know.

I haven’t figured this out yet either. Mines almost 13 and it’s a struggle

Always check for depression first when hygiene is a problem. After that try saying “what else do you need to do?” Kids turn us off if we keep TELLING them what they need to do when we need to get them to THINK!!!believe me it worked with my teen grandson. And if we are always telling them what to do, what do you think. When the kid with the drugs says here try this it will make you feel cool or better. He/she will if you haven’t given them the tools to think for themselves.

I don’t have that problem, I have to yell to get him out of shower! :joy:

Tell them to take a shower. If they argue, shut off the wifi and take away their phones, or whatever is distracting them, until they’re all showered. If they have plans to go out, tell them they’re not leaving until they’re clean. If their expecting you to drive them, lose your keys until after they get out of the shower.

Ine when he was around 12-13 yrs old wouldn’t take a shower. What a struggle it was. Then I couldn’t get him out of the shower. I told him, whatever he is doing shouldn’t take that long !! :blush: Many will understand that one :blush: I am guessing it’s a boy thing!! He’s now 49 :blush: So this is a normal thing…

Everything taken away until they shower properly. My sons went through this stage. I made him shower until he no longer smelled, so if he had to shower back to back 5 time’s until he got it correct, then that’s what he did. I also threatened to bathe him myself and stood in his room with the bathroom door open so I could hear and tell him what steps to take while showering. I even told him that if he couldn’t shower correctly then I would bathe him myself to physically show him since he wouldn’t follow instructions (never had to do this thankfully) but he got my point and realized Momma wasn’t playing this game at all with him. I have two boys. My oldest is 25 now. The caboose just turned 13. Both of my boys thought it was a waste of their time when it came to showering. I was consistent and meant everything I said and they had consequences until they learned that I was not giving in one inch with this issue. With the youngest it took him a week or so before it registered with him. Now we have zero issues. I even wrote instructions on a piece of paper and put in a zip lock bag and tapped to the inside of his shower for a month. Along with instructions on his mirror in his bathroom. That seemed to help as well. My youngest is ADHD and is distracted very easily. Now that he is getting older, he is a lot better. having a list to go by has helped a lot with him as well.

Threaten to shut the internet down

Pull their cellphones, games, internet, till after they shower. Tell them they can’t go anywhere till they shower. Tell them that girl they have their eye on won’t give them a second glance if they stink.

Not a child but I had a full grown man as a roommate who stank really bad and didn’t shower enough. I basically just stopped being polite about it. Telling him to go to another room where I wasn’t if he was going to pollute the air with his rotten onion armpits. I think I finally embarrassed him enough that he finally started daily showering. I’m not saying embarrass your son but just make him aware of how awful it is to smell that bad haha.
