Poor girl either had an untreated medical condition or neglectful parents. Family services should get involved.
I read about that...the child isn't bathing, brushing her teeth, or being given a clean change of clothes, and she's 8.<br />
...CPS should have already been called.
It makes me wonder if mom's making crystal meth and the odor's saturated the girl's clothing.
Perhaps child services should step in. There is obviously something wrong at home, and the parents are responsible for her hygiene (since she is only 8), not the child.
If it's on Fox news, it's fake.
that poor little girl has to be living in some dysfunctional hell. some one should have investigated her home life long before the 28th suspension
they will probably have to do something now that the media has a hold of it
28 times does seem much.She shouldn't be suspended though.The nurse should send her home with a toothbrush,toothpaste,clean clothes,deodgerent,and perfume
She should probably take a bath. Does anybody reasonable person think any differently?
My first thought: is it a hygiene question that can be corrected, or is it a medical condition? BIG difference between the two situations
Then, if the child is so unwashed that she smells so badly consistently, it should be investigated by someone. Is the family possibly living homeless with no access to regular washing facilities? Are there any extenuating circumstances? Can the child wash at the school if necessary?
