fbpx My Teenage Son Doesn’t Want to Take Care of Himself. Is This Normal for Teens?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on August 9, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

My teen has no motivation to take care of himself - I have to remind him to shower. He sleeps all the time, and he has gained a lot of weight. How do I know if this is typical teen behavior or something more?

Dear James:

Dr. Michelle K. Murray sits down with Tera Girardin this week to answer your question via video! 

Dr. Michelle explains that while teens often forget about their hygiene, there are signs to look for that could show it might be more than typical teenage behavior.
