  Case: Dirty kid
I am a substitute teacher that often does long-term assignments. There is a 4th grade student that always comes to class very tired, in dirty clothes, and often smells bad. To add insult to injury, I've seen his mother and she is very well kept, dressed with all the "bling accessories," her nails done, hair done, etc. I can't understand how a mother can take such great care for herself, and leave the child a filthy mess.
How should this be addressed and handled properly?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I would first talk to the parent about the child and if that didn't work I would consider the child to be neglected and call child services
