Please tell the mother to have the child's Immune System checked. When my Immune System gets low I smell like...CHEESE! lol
My Dr. told me when the Immune System gets low it changes the body odor.
I just went into my Dr.'s office & said y'all are gonna think I'm stupid but something is bad wrong because I smell like cheese! They said well we will just start calling u cheesy then! lol
Yet, they done required testing & sure enough
my Immune System was low.
God's blessings to this precious child.
I will pass this along right now! Thank you!

Poor kid. The mother did a really stupid thing by taking this to the media. This kid will be tormented for the rest of her life now unfortunately. Kids are mean and she'll forever be the smelly kid thanks to her mom publicizing it.

You really believe she wasn't already being bullied over this? You are right, kids are mean... And evidently so are adults, because now, instead of giving support, advice and help... Most people are bullying this mother. I'm just glad the mother knew this would come but did it regardless, to get her daughter the help she couldn't otherwise get. This was a last resort for the mother... But her daughter is now being tested and they are closer now to finding out why this is happening.

You got that right, young kids can easily be very mean, vicious, and conniving and then they grow up to be the same immature mean spirited vicious bastards.
Know why? Because when a kid acts that way nowadays you can no longer back hand the little shit out of their chair or off their feet and then while their crying tell them quite plainly "See how painful and unpleasant that was? That's how others feel when you're mean and hurtful towards them, so don't do it because next time it'll be worse."

That's how I was raised, and I'll tell you now, I'll bust my two boy's a$$es in a heartbeat, especially for being mean to another child.

Soap. Perhaps a different type of soap, uncommon from the kinds in Walmart. The reason I say this is because of skin having a certain ph balance. If the ph is more or less this can cause bacteria to colonize, yeast even and these two microbes produce odors as they metabolize. It could just be a matter that the girls skin has the perfect environment for bacteria to grow exponentialy fast.
Maybe a pediatrcian cant help but a dermatologist...
I wish this family the best. God Bless.

Let's all be realistic here. This kid wasn't being bathed regularly. This was told to DCS by the child. The home is a disgusting mess that is littered with trash, dirty clothing, and animal waste. The kids sleep on dirty/stained mattresses. That is NOT the responsibility of the school. If her parents can't do their damn job of PARENTING, they should put the child in foster care. It is VERY simple! When the child was bathed and had clean clothes on, she didn't stink. Her parents need to get off their asses and clean that nasty house! And yes, I HAVE seen it and I will NOT offer to help them. I didn't tell them to rent a shack with inadequate room for their family. I didn't tell them to allow animals into their home to shit on the floors. I won't spend my money or time on cleaning up someone else's problems when they don't care enough to do it themselves. DCS should have removed their children a long time ago.

If hygiene was truly an issue, wouldn't both children have an "odor"? I do mean, they are BOTH living in the same house with the same "conditions" right?!? And they do not rent. That is a family home... Been in the family for years. This family IS NOT "bad people" nor are they "bad parents". They may not be able to afford luxury... But living isn't about money. If you think it's a horrendous situation, how about you step up and tell them your opinion?!? How about you not waste your time or money.... But most of all... If you're gonna waste your breath, do so in a positive and helpful manner, not the straight up, better than everyone, holier than thou way you have chosen to do so here. No one should be shamed like you are attempting here.

I'm not "holier than thou", but I do care enough about my child to make sure that she is fed, bathed, and dressed in clean, age appropriate clothing everyday. When she goes to bed at night, she sleeps in a clean bed. That's more than I can say for that family. They CHOOSE to live in filth, and they do not deserve compassion and understanding for that. Why don't YOU get off of YOUR ass and help them? And no one said that their other child didn't smell as well. As most people with common sense know, children are much more aware of hygiene and appearance as they age. A five year old is not as likely to tease, bully, or tell on a classmate for being stinky or dirty, but a ten or twelve year old will notice those things in seconds. It saddens me that you choose to make excuses for this family. It tells a lot about you as a person. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to find out that your home is in the same condition as theirs is. As for me being "helpful", I am. I am not enabling them. I am being honest and telling them that they are not good parents in this aspect. I did not say that they were bad people or that they didn't love their children. However, they would most definitely benefit from parenting classes and lessons in hygiene. I do feel very sorry for their children. They do not understand why they are being punished and ridiculed. That alone would make me question my parenting if I were her mother.

I know the family personally. I also know the struggles they have and that they do their very best. There are some people who cannot accept that someone else's very best may not live up to other's (your) standards. I am in close contact with this family and at the very second I feel I can do anything to help them, I will be on my feet doing so. As for my home, I suggest you make no more assumptions about me and mine.:)

Funny. You just made me lol. I could see some disrespectful teen speaking to me, chomping their gums and trying to get under my skin.

I do not enable. To enable would mean I help them to live the way you have "described"...

en·abler
: one that enables another to achieve an end ; especially : one who enables another to persist in self-destructive behavior (as substance abuse) by providing excuses or by making it possible to avoid the consequences of such behavior

I am not aware that I help in any way as of right now, other than suggestions of how to fix the situation, or recommendations to doctors, therapists, etc. But since you seem to "see all, know all" maybe you can explain that? The only thing I am trying to accomplish is getting the family help and advice that is beyond "take a bath"... Give me something new.
