I Took a Bath With My Daughter and I Don’t Think It’s That Weird

They start stinking about age 11 and they don’t realize it. I walk into my classroom and it’s like getting hit in the nose with a baseball bat of ass!”


The teacher wrote that she understands that some kids have bad home situations and don’t get to take regular showers. But she added “all kids smell once puberty hits”.

Parents responded telling us their kids don’t want to take showers or wear deodorant.  Other parents told us their kids, usually boys, over use spray on deodorants like Axe Body Spray. Puberty plus too much Axe Body Spray is apparently a strong, not so pleasant,  combination.


Teachers responded to the message telling us that they face, or smell, the same odors in their classroom. One teacher at a Tuscaloosa Middle School says she has to turn on a fan and open all the classroom windows.


Whatever happened to required showers after gym class?
It worked back in my day.

Parents please give your kid a sniff test before they leave in the morning.  And teachers might invest in a candle or two. Perhaps a can of Glade.
