  • I haven't had that problem boys are only 8 and 6, and they LOVE taking showers and swimming! I hope to be able to "ride that wave" through puberty and until they master their personal hygiene!!

    BUT, I work in a middle school (grades 4, 5 and 6), each grade is on a different floor, and let me tell you something, there is a DISTINCT difference between the 4th and 5th grade floors, and don't even get me started about the 6th grade floor!!! YIKES!!

  • My oldest son, who is now 10, has been wearing deodorant since he was 7. He HAS to shower and wear deodorant every day or you can't be in the same room with him.

  • It is weird... some days he NEEDS deodorant and some days he does not. I would say around 10 is when I started noticing it.
