Child protection services (CPS)? Hello?
First off, foul body odor on a regular basis.....Call CPS.

Secondly, missing THAT MANY days of school is a problem in itself......Call CPS.

Newborns that develop a musty body odor in their breath, urine or skin may be displaying symptoms of phenylketonuria otherwise known as PKU, according to the Mayo clinic. This birth defect is when a mutation occurs in the gene containing instructions for making the enzyme used to break down phenylalanine, an amino acid. Babies in the United States are screened for this condition at birth. The musty body odor smell is caused when phenylalanine is built up in the body. The treatment for people with PKU is to follow a diet limiting proteins.

Parent doesn't regularly bathe her. She sleeps in her clothes. Her house probably smells too. It's the fault of the parent(s) that this poor little girl is stinky. Shame on them.

Well, I think calling her "Skunk Girl" is a bit over the top, but if she responds to it...

Doesn't get a bath or clean clothes, probably doesn't get a clean bed to sleep in either.

Mom is probably unaware and preoccupied with her 15 cats urinating and defecating in the living room, if not totally absorbed with her crack pipe habit.

Before things move into medical evaluations, there are some questions:
1. What does the mother mean by "bath"? Time for some show-and-tell.
2. How and how often does the mother wash the kid's clothing? Need more show-and-tell.
3. What does the home smell like?
4. Does the mother have a record of mental health issues? It is truly remarkable what some mentally ill people mean by the terms "bath" and "laundry."
5. What is wrong with Tennessee Protective Services? Why aren't they asking these questions?

It could be a medical condition. If that's the case, it's not her fault.
