Children need to learn to take care of themselves. Talk to the child about personal cleanliness and why it is important. Together make a list of what needs to be done to clean themselves and get ready for school in the morning. Each morning they should check off what they have accomplished. For the first few weeks remind the children to accomplish these tasks and reward them for a job well done. Shortly there after, let them accomplish these tasks without reminding them. Praise them for looking good and doing a good job.
