When a child shows interest in hygiene and asks about deodorant, jump on the opportunity to establish the habit. There are several pre-teen products on the market. Talk to your pediatrician if you're unsure. Definitely suggest when the time if right if the kid doesn't first raise the issue.

As soon as the sweat glands under the arms mature. This can be from age 10 to 18. If their underarms smell like adult body odor after a day of not showering or a day of sweaty play, it's time.

I think they should start, when they have had an active day at play. When they have finished and their is a slight odor under their arms, this would be a ood time to start. Also asking the child's pediatrition would be an even better choice, because then you would be prepared for that time when it comes.

Kids normally start using deodorant when they hit puberty. If your child sweats alot or battles with body odor then you can use a light fragrance deodorant earlier.
