Genital toilet is especially very important for females as their openings for urinary tract and vagina are close to anal opening.any contamination can easily predispose them to have vaginal or urinary infection.12 yr old girl is big enough to understand and you need to sit down and explain her that she could get ill due to her habit.try encouraging her rather than punishment.try rewarding her when she di does.Ask her if she is scared to do it or find s it dirty to do it.With love and positive reinforcement she wil learn to do it.
