Gag! The pre-teen stink begins!

My daughter has deodorant, but she hasnt actually needed it... until today. She came up and hugged me, and whoa! I told her going forward, she is to wear deodorant daily... starting immediately.

I thought she would slip into adolescence gradually, but its hitting her all at once! No wonder shes so moody all of the time.

My oldest son is 11 and yeah he's really into the needing it phase. He doesn't always remember to wear it. When he hugs me I straight up tell him he stinks when he does. 😖😷

Yeah, I not so nicely told her that she stinks and to go put on some deodorant. But then I remembered that this is all new to her. She told me it didnt hurt her feelings. I let her know we are going to go to the store tonight and she can pick our the scent and kind that she likes best. :D

Sigh, I feel your pain! My 10 y/o is starting too and soon enough puberty will come. Today we went shopping for swimsuit and we had to go to junior section, no kids section anymore. Part of me was crying inside but at the same time happy. Time goes so fast.

Mine to, I went to the store looking for teen spirit only to find out they don't make it. I ended up taking a Tom's teen in wicked cool scent

The other day my dd came and sat next to me on the couch and put her arm around me. I had the same reaction...whoa! Lol. She has deodorant but hardly ever wears it. She needs to start every day though!

I've heard of this, but never experienced it.
My boys start wearing deodorant around ten.
