My Bud has B.O.

One of my closest friends has really bad B.O.! I don't know what to do! I don't want to hurt her feelings, but sometimes it can be really bad. Even some of my other friends have noticed it. Should I tell her? What would I say? Help!

I think you should talk to her about it. But, don’t do it in a rude way, such as saying, "You stink." That’s just hurtful and doesn’t solve the problem.

Maybe she doesn’t use deodorant yet. Clue her in and give her a hint by talking about the deodorant you use. Ask her, "Which kind do you use?" If she says she doesn’t use deodorant yet, tell her that you LOVE the kind you use and she should really check it out.

If that doesn’t work you may want to gently take her aside and tell her what’s up. But remember, be nice! Tell her that you don’t want people talking behind her back and you’re just giving her a heads up to help out.
