By Joshua Rhett Miller. The lawsuit, which was moved to US District Court in Hammond this week after being filed in Lake County Superior Court last month, alleges that the boy at Clark Middle School in Whiting was attacked by multiple high school athletes in a shared locker room on Feb. The lawsuit also names at least nine juvenile students, as well as coaches Stefen Hutchins and Marcos Campos. Messages seeking comment from Watkins and Wilson were not immediately returned early Thursday. Attorneys for Campos and Hutchins were not available for comment late Wednesday, as well as attorney Thomas Wheeler, who is representing the Hammond school district, according to the Tribune.

Dealing with a teen who refuses to shower can be embarrassing and confusing for parents. It can be hard for some teens to make the transition to treating their bodies more like adults, rather than kids. Discuss how physical changes, like increased perspiration and the emergence of body hair, means a daily shower is important. Explain to your teen that skin bacteria feed on sweat, which leads to body odor. Many teens would rather spend their spare time playing video games or chatting with their friends, rather than worrying about hygiene issues. Taking a shower can feel like it gets in the way of all the other things they actually want to do. Teens are also excellent procrastinators. Set limits and provide consequences. For example, teens with serious depression may lack the interest and energy to shower. In some cases, traumatic experiences can be behind hygiene issues.
For some students, nothing is worse than taking high school showers after gym. If the idea of taking a shower after gym class sends shivers up your spine, read on to get some ideas on how to deal with this all-too-common problem! People who perspire a lot, especially after sports activities, need to take a shower.
They don't blink an eye when they spot a kid with drugs or a classmate with a baby. It's not that big a deal anymore if guys or girls dye their hair pink and pierce their faces. Eyes bulge at the mere mention of showering around other students, which was common — mandatory even — in middle schools and high schools across the country just a decade or two ago. Today, students have the option of stripping down to wash off the sweat and grime after workouts and playing in the hot Florida sun. Most of the time, though, they don't. Even after hours of sports practice and rigorous competitions, many students wait to bathe at home. Last semester, Bracy skipped showers after his twice-a-day gym classes, preferring to freshen up with a washcloth and a dousing of BOD Man body spray. After practice in the afternoons, Marvin said he goes straight home. It might seem odd that teens, who are notoriously self-conscious, would forgo a quick rinse to keep from stinking in class.
