Hahaha! My middle likes to wear his daddy's sometimes but until now, he's never really needed it.

Quoting myhandsomelove: 2/3 yrs. Not because he needed it, he would see his dad and want to do the same. He's 7 now and its habit for him to. Which is great lol get the stinky before it starts lol

Yup lol.  Ds didn't smell really, but now he's all freaked out about smelling good, so I guess it helped lol

Quoting Anonymous: Well that's one way to get the kids to do it... lol
Quoting TurtleMomma82:

Ds is 8 and he started on his own because his teacher said the class stunk.

I think my middle will be good about it if we get him in the habit. My oldest will probably require constant reminders, no matter what anyone says.

Thanks! I know nothing about boys deoderant. I guess I'm going to learn.

In 5th grade they got a kit from the health teacher. My son didn't really have body odor yet but he wanted to use deodarant, just not the one that came in the kit.  I bought him one he wanted.

Google helped me alot:
Ds is only in 3rd grade. He really doesn't like the strong scented "men" deodorants.
So I opted for the natural for heath reasons & to avoid the strong smells. ( we have plenty of time for that later on). Ds just wanted to not be stinky like gym socks as he explains it. Lol
