I remember when I was around eleven years old, our school teacher sat us all down and did her best to create a fun lecture about personal hygiene and how we were all old enough, and privileged enough to start using deodorant. She then passed around miniature sticks of deodorant for all of us, and I remember that my friends and I felt so cool to take this very adult step.
Looking back on it, I'm not sure whether or not this was standard public school protocal at the time, or whether there was a stinky kid in the class that my teacher had taken pity on, but this suttle approach to our changing bodies was just right.
Unilever is taking a similar approach, offering support to tweens and parents alike, in a new campaign called Don't Fret the Sweat.
Facebook.com/DontFretTheSweat for money saving offers and tips from the experts. Parents can also get valuavle information about how other parents are communicating and transitional their tweens into their teens without getting too stressed out.
