My SIL got a foster kid on Friday. She is 14. I watch my sil kids so I watched her too on Friday. I got her to take a shower and gave her all the stuff. Cherry blossom body wash, secret clinical deodorant, toothbrush and paste and pantene shampoo and conditioner. My SIL had her take a bath Friday night and shower and bath Saturday and today. She is still stinky...so any advice??

Maybe no one taught her how to wash herself? If she never had parents who cared about her she might not know what to do with all these new supplies.

I don't think she is on it right now. I feel bad cause I don't wanna be mean. I felt really bad about making her shower :(

I would talk about properly washing and if there's still an issue maybe she should see a gyn

Maybe SIL should have a quick refresher course on washing herself and remind her how to properly clean her girl parts.

idk... the whole story. Her mom was charged on abuse and neglect. She has older bother like 18,19 and 21 and her dad is trying to get custody. I will tell her in more detail on what to do.

Not to be gross, but stink like what? Is it armpit smell? Maybe she needs a different deodorant. Is it feminine odor? I would probably take her to an OBGYN. Even if she doesnt have an infection you can rule it out and they can go over proper washing of that area.
