Is this a bit too early?

My son is 6 and getting ready to start kindergarten, on Tuesday. Last night when he gave me a hug, one of his many lol, his under arms stunk bad. Isn't it a bit too early for that?

  • Nope. He's just hitting puberty early. My son started wearing "b.o.-juice" (underarm deodorant/antiperspirant) when he was eight. Right before he turned eight. By a few days.

  • Wasn't like stinky feet. I thoght it was my almost 10 year old daughter at first. It was more manly..

  • No, not too early at all. I can't tell you how many kids need some kind of deodorant long before their parents address the problem. At this age he'll probably love anything to be a "big boy". (c;

  • My goodness, I guess it is possible. Poor thing but I guess you just get to start that whole hygiene thing early!
