Do you expect your 12 yr old to shower, brush teeth and wash face without being told.
Am I expecting to much?
She has black-heads on her nose, she nose looks purple because its so bad. I buy her stuff to use - but I don't feel like I should have to stand over her every night to make sure she does it.
She didn't shower for two / three days - her hair was gross.
Then I worry about her not brushing her teeth - gross!
Is she to young for these responsabilities?
Yes, I see her every evening but I don't inspect her - we went out this evening & I really looked at her hair. Ugh.. I know, acne is hard & its just starting, but wouldn't she want to prevent it.

I think a twelve year old is old enough to handle this kind of responsibility without having to be told. Have you though of consequences for the not bathing? My parents gave me a set time to bathe and eat or I went without,. If I did not take a shower when told; then I didn't get to go out for the weekend. I think at 12 you should know how to take care of your own personal hygiene.
