At what age did your child start wearing deoderant? Why?

My children (who are 9 and almost 8) have their own deoderants. Mainly it is to get them ready for when they need it.

  • I think it's a good idea to teach proper hygiene before they get into middle/high school and need it.

  • My son was 14 when he first needed it. My daughter is 7 and needs it already. If they don't need it, I wouldn't have them use it.

  • Around 8 or 9 my mom bought me teen spirit (i think thats what it was). My kids will start it as early as they need it. My son already runs around trying to put it on because he gets ready with us in the morning and hes not even two, so we just pretend to put it on him.
