Grooming Habits, Important in Middle School
In this episode of The Middle School Years Podcast, Mekhi and I talking about grooming habits in middle school. I’m so amazed at how as a parent you have to tell your kids to take a bath. And truthfully, you have to tell both boys and girls this.
Mekhi often takes very long showers but before you think, “You know what he’s doing in there!”, he tells me in this episode. Now I know why our family water bill is so high. It’s the boy’s long showers!
You can take a bath if it soothes you. – Mekhi
In this episode, we’re breaking down healthy grooming habits for middle schoolers. Even the simplest habits can be a challenge, such as hair combing and brushing your teeth before you go to bed. Why do kids not like to brush at night? Hmmm.
Some of Mekhi’s grooming advice has me laughing so hard. It really took me by surprise. You don’t want to miss what he says.
Let’s get to it.

HI! I’m Jennifer. Wife to Ronald. Mom to preteen, Mekhi and 8-year old Ayden. I’m a fam-focused, faith-filled, purpose-driven everyday girlfriend navigating life in the middle. I believe in purposeful pause and reflection ’cause sometimes you gotta slow down to gain perspective. And perspective is just what I’m sharing with other M.O.Ms (moms of middle schoolers).
Hi, I’m Mekhi and I’m 11 years old. I enjoy playing basketball, reading long novels, and pestering my sister. Some people call me a jokester but I’m just a naturally funny dude. My mom always says, “Be a kid as long as you can.” It’s kinda hard when everyone expects you to be so mature and grown up. But, I’m taking it one day at a time.
