I cannot get my 12 year old to shower to save my life. I will tell him when I leave for work in the morning to shower. He will say that he will and then not do it. Or tell my DF or his Grandparents that he has, and that I told him to. Then when I get home and ask him he'll squirm a bit but admit that he hasn't showered and that he lied. Today is my first day off since last Friday. I forced him to get into the shower. I did yell at him and tell him it was GROSS. Which I kinda feel bad about, but he's almost a teenager and I don't want him to be THAT guy that doesn't shower.
My DF tells me that it's a phase and it will pass. That he was the same when he was a young boy. Then he realized that it felt great to shower and does it mulitple times a day since.
What's a Mom to do? =\
