What the hell are your supposed to do?
My oldest is 10 and she absolutely refuses to bathe. I only really make them take 2 baths/showers a week unless they get really dirty or sweaty. Then once a week I wash their hair in the sink to make sure it gets really clean. They have school pictures tomorrow so I waited to do their hair tonight. I got the other 3 kids' hair in less than 20 minutes and then they all jumped in the shower to wash their bodies.
But the 10yo threw a tantrum, ran away, refused to lean over the sink, screamed and kicked at me. Then instead of jumping in the shower she filled the dirty tub up and thinks that will get her clean and out of washing her hair. She is always dirty and gross and short of physically forcing her with brute strength to stand over the sink I don't know what to do. She's now grounded all weekend for throwing a fit. She doesn't care if she is dirty or smells.
