Good morning all,
I have a 12 year old boy who refuses to bathe properly, meaning he will get in the shower get wet but won't wash properly and honestly he STINKS!!! No matter what my husband and I do. Any suggestions? Should I just leave him alone and once he really starts to like girls he will do better? Am I answering my own question?

I had the same problem with my step son. I started buying him axe body wash and the girls started telling him how good he smells. They have a set you can get with body wash and deordrant and a "man loathe". You should start to see a change instantly.
