That's around the age mine are. I expected to have another year or two before we got to that.

Quoting MomRocs1102:

when they start to smell lol, our 9 year old started wearing at 6.

I see having to remind my oldest. He doesn't care much.

Quoting Anonymous: Step dd has needed it since 9. She never remembers it though so we have to hound her about it when she is here. Her mother is very opposed to her baby growing up so I don't know if she uses it at her house.

So far, it's not often they come home from school smelling. But we've been outside more lately and when we come in, they just stink! Lol

Quoting AZHOTMOM:

When they come in from outside or school and I can smell them, its time for deodorant.

My daughter is almost 12; she's not even close to puberty or smelly yet, but I bought her some a few months ago just to get her in the habit of practicing good hygiene.
