Don’t Fret the Sweat: Talking to your kids about puberty

Are your kids reaching that age? You know, the age when you are doing the laundry and suddenly their clothes start smelling like… TEENAGERS?! You notice the sweat stains in their soccer shirts, the changes in their bodies and clothes fitting differently. Your kids are growing up; they’re no longer children and they aren’t quite teenagers. They’ve hit the awkward tween years and it’s time to have the talk.

The tween years are full of changes. Whether or not you’re ready, your kids’ bodies are telling you something. Increased hormones are causing noticeable differences… growth spurts, new orders and other new changes. It may seem awkward for you and the kids, but it’s just a rite of passage on the way to maturity for them.

Unilever – the makers of Degree, Dove and Suave deodorant offer support for these difficult times. They want to make sure kids stay cool, calm and confident during these changes.

Check out   Don’t Fret The Sweat on Facebook for money-saving offers, as well as videos with expert tips, tools and real-life stories on how parents are communicating with their kids and transitioning tweens into confident, self-reliant teens.

These years can be really hard on anyone’s body image, so any organization or company that’s working to promote good, healthy body image can be useful for kids. It’s important they know they aren’t alone.

You can also visit Don’t Fret the Sweat’s Web Site for interactive tools you can use to work with your kid during this trying but important time!
