Do I force my 9 yr old to take a shower or do I let her wallow in her own stink?
She is old enough to take a shower by herself and I get tired of arguing about it. She is home schooled so its not like she goes out very much but when we do I make sure that her hair is brushed and stuff I won't let her visibly go nasty. I just braided her hair and showed her the mound that came out on the brush hoping that its enough to say "this is what happens when you don't wash or take care of your hair" she said " I'll take a shower next time

Your kidding right? I forced my kids to shower and wash their hair. If they did not do it, I would clean them myself. Why are you giving her a choice?
