My son was the opposite, as a child getting him to shower or bathe was a weekly struggle. Around 10 he did it willingly and regularly. My mother and son were riding in the car with me at about that time when she looked at me with shock on her face and said “When did he start smelling good?” Didn’t know, it seemed to happen overnight. And definitely had something to do with him noticing girls. Actual puberty didn’t happen until shortly after he turned 13 which was earlier than most of the boys in his class.Whats on my mind? (Don’t worry I already googled it.) When do boys start getting those hormonal puberty changes? Because my kid stinks and he never used to be rough. Fearless and reckless when he was little; but not rough and tumble.
