Besides convincing him that ladies/gentlemen prefer a person who showers and smells good, I'm at a loss. And I'm not sure how to proceed in getting this through his head... He's turned into the older version of the kid, "Frankenstein", from "Big Daddy" staring Adam Sandler... I wish he had Scuba Steve to help him get into the bath at this point.
Please help me. I will be showing him the responses of the MHOs of both girls and guys, and there will be many, I hope, just to prove to him that people don't want to be around you if you're smelly.

Does he suffer from depression? Usually the first sign that someone is depressed is they stop all hygiene practices. Another thing is that he is going through puberty and guys have an unmistakable scent that rivals a musk ox. Its a horrible smell and not to mention the smell of animal flesh rotting between his teeth. His not taking care of his teeth now will affect him when he gets old not to mention cost him lots of money. Also poor dental hygiene can actually cause someone to die. When all of his friends start hanging with girls and he doesn't have any girls that are friends he will get it. Either that or his teachers will pull him aside and address the issue. True story here: My husband worked with a man who wouldn't clean himself properly. He had the smell of a sour unwashed backside. His fellow coworkers went to management and complained about his body odor. He was actually written up on numerous occasions and also lost his job because of his unwashed body. Don't let something as special as hygiene set the tone for disappointment the rest of your life.
