Oh, I should add - I remember when my ds was about this age when he was going though this phase where he would shower, get out of the shower, then put his dirty underwear back on.... He seemed to think that "since they didn't look dirty" they must be fine. When I found out what was going on (the laundry was a big clue lol) - I told him to go upstairs and put on clean underwear right now! He did, then for the rest of the day was squirming around, picking at his butt, etc. Come to find out - the boy put the clean underwear on all right - RIGHT OVER THE DIRTY PAIR! Drove me nuts!
But - now he's an 18 yr old Senior in High School, gets good grades, is an Eagle Scout, the starting goalie for the Soccer team, and, while able to go to college, has chosen to go into the military (and smoked the enlistment exam), so.... They do outgrow it with time and effort :-)
