Open Letter to Parents of Teens

Perhaps by allowing your children to go days (and perhaps weeks, even?) without showering, you are hoping to decrease the odds that you will become a grandparent at an early age. Whatever the rationale behind your decision, it is still gross. By the time a child is in his teens (especially because he is in his teens), he needs to shower at least once a day. Possibly twice.

I don't care if you need to bundle your child up in his comforter and dump him in the bath fully-clothed before he's awake in the morning. Whatever needs to happen, get it done.

Sincerely,
Your Friendly Neighborhood ESTJ.

  1. YOUUUUUUUUUUU said it! And it starts as early as 4th grade. A LOT of 4th graders need to learn the fine art of wearing deodorant every. single. day.

  2. Thought your time as a camp counselor had prepared you for this!
