It’s an embarrassing topic but it’s one that has to be dealt with, and that is teens and hygiene. As teens go through puberty, they start to develop new problems, and these problems are often associated with hygiene. As a parent, you need to explain to your teenager what those specific problems are and, more or less, help them. Help them get through that time where they’re going to be going through those changes. Monitoring hygiene can actually have a longer effect on the teen and how they interact with other people at school. How they get along in relationships. It’s very important.
