How do I get my sister to take a shower?

She is mentally disabled and averages 3-4 showers a month. She stinks! It's gross! And she goes to school every day like that!

  • Maybe take her somewhere like bath and body and let her pick out some special shower gel and lotion. Tell them they are for her and to shower everyday so she can smell pretty too. She may just want to hurry home and try it out.

  • ask her if she knows that she smells and explain that showering regularly would make her not smell.

  • Maybe she needs help with showering? How old is she? Cant your parents or someone help her get a shower?

  • She is 20 but mentally somewhere between 9-12. She rarely showers and when she does she doesn't wash herself well.
