I start out with such high hopes and faith in myself only to be shot down and feeling discouraged. My new job is great, except for one little factor. He refuses to take a shower for me or even change his clothes without a fight. I've been brought up to respect my elders not force them into doing things they don't want to. So what am I supposed to do? I had to get his son to help me get him changed Atleast. I didn't push the shower issue. Now I feel like a failure because I didn't do my job as it should've been done. I didn't want to let my old boss down but I may have to on this one. Everyone tells me to be firm with him. Ok tell me how when he's a pill and an overgrown 2 yr old who seems to be throwing a tantrum? I don't have a clue. When my little guy (my littlest) throws a fit I get mad at him. But how can you get mad at a grown man who you don't know very well and expect him to do as you wish? Ugh!!!! Help!!!! I like him, respect him, but also dnot want him getting sore on my account. Where do I draw the line on this one? I'm feeling incredibly defeated and as though I'm not doing what I should and that they'll get rid of me because of it. How can I change this situation around to where he gets in the shower for me and Atleast helps me some without having to get anybody yelling at him?! I'm feeling stumped and need advice, thanks!!
