- Mar 4 by NutmeggeRNKIDS-For the most part no and often it is with relief as they know they smell and often cannot do anything about it until someone like me intervenes.
Parents- Never had a problem and I have at times offered the shower to them as well.....
I shall now duck and run ....
- Mar 4 by my crazy worldWow that is a hard place. But it can be handled in a positive way. Deffinatly in private of course, maybe their is something going on with the student.... depression, maybe unable to get items needed to handle the sitation. In high school I was in a very very dark place and just wanted to go away. I did nothing because I was in such darkness I didnt have the energy or the drive. It was a counsiler at the school that took me a side and gave me attention that made me relize that I was worth while. She got me some pretty smelly bath stuff and make up and hair tips. If it wasn't for the time she took out for me, I honestly would have done the unthinkable and ended it all. If it is a young man talk to him. Just be empathetic and caring and i would not mention about the complaints from everyone. It may make the student uncomfortable around everyone, wondering what they are saying behind his back and all that annoying mental stuff. Just approach as you noticed them and show intrest in who they are. I dont know if this helps but being the student in the situation myself that is how I would approach the situation.
- Apr 24 by intheweedsI try to be as nice and keep it as light as possible if I see students one-on-one. I also try to keep it general, even if it just me and the student ("The teachers have noticed a lot of kids having hygiene issues in your grade, so we're speaking to some of you. This is a really common issue for kids your age..."). I also really like the advice of asking how things are going at home...
- Apr 24 by MarascaI would like to point out that some boys just stink! I have a perfectly healthy nephew who produces an astonishingly bad odor. No rural / farm influence involved. An hour after he showers you will hesitate to hug him. Poor guy. I'm not sure there's a deodorant in this world that can help him.
- Apr 25 by Vtachy1I personally have had a problem recently. My mom and grandma were of the generation that washed their hair once a week at the beauty shop. They usually bathed everyday or at least did a sponge bath. But only washed their hair once a week. I never honestly smelled a bad odor on them.
So I have always washed my hair every single day no matter what. Then a couple of years ago my sister and I visited a salon that was extremely upscale and expensive (she had won free spa coupons!) So I had them color my hair while I was there etc... The stylist got after me and yelled at me for washing my hair everyday. I am 40 years old. She said once a week is all I should be washing my hair. I was baffled by this and confused how does anyone wash their hair only once a week??? I exercise sometimes and sweat!! I mow the yard and there's tons of dust! Even if i never did any of these things, YUCK!! So I tried to give it a try and I could only go 2 days between hair washing. People were talking about me behind my back about how I stunk! I scrubbed and bathed every single day sometimes twice a day but I guess you stiill have bacteria on your scalp and my hair stunk!!! I even got some spray that you can clean the roots, but I found out that I just have to wash my hair every day or ever other day. Learned that the hard way after being humiliated. Don't listen to these fancy expensive salons!!!
