What IS that smell?!

Even though my son, who is 11, and my daughter, who is almost 10, are 22 months apart in age, they seem to go through the same milestones of life at nearly the same time.  The current milestone: sweat.

I have to constantly remind my son to put on his deodorant every morning.  Trust me when I tell you that I KNOW the days when he hasn't worn any.  My daughter can usually get by with just wearing some on her P.E. days, but sometimes even she can stink you out of a room with her body odor.

While not quite as embarrassing as talking to your kids about the birds and the bees, telling your kid that their sweating is now a bit of a smelly mess isn't always easy.  It's the explanation of why their bodies are now making a sweaty mess of their armpits that can be the hardest part.  At least it was for me.

Unilever has a great new program to help parents give their kids confidence and make this transition all the easier for them.  It's called ...
There are great resources with frequently asked questions (ie. what is the difference between deodorant and anti-perspirant anyway?), expert advice, and a cool product matchmaker that can help you (and your little stinker) pick out the perfect product for them!  You can even find them on Facebook, too!

I'm happy to be involved with this project brought to my attention through the One 2 One Network.
