My boarding school roommate is driving me nuts
I live in a dorm at boarding school. My roommate is not very hygienic, and I have to be like a mom to her. I have to pull her out of bed in the morning, and tell her when to bathe and clean her side of the room. I’ve talked to her but to no avail.
Dear Not Her Mom,
Tell your resident advisor. It’s her job to help your roommate take care of herself and her area. Also, suggest your roommate get an alarm clock. If she oversleeps, it’s her problem—not yours. Try positive reinforcement when she does something right: “Thanks for putting your shoes away.” Remember, learning to live with different people is part of your education.
