My LO is almost 9 and she keeps asking me when she gets to shave her legs. How old did your daughters start shaving their legs?

I was 10 or 11.
My first time was a disaster. I was living with my aunt at the time and she was dead set against letting me do it. But I did it anyway. I shaved off part of my damn leg. lol.

I was 10.
I bet she goes to school with girls who already do though, so she may feel uncomfortable still having leg hair. Obviously she cant always do things just because others do, but as for this, I'd probably let her start.

I don't remember, honestly. But if she is asking about it, I would at least consider it. I would ask her why she wants to start shaving. If she felt self conscious about it, I would probably let her start shaving.

I did, too. And I had full blown periods by 10, so I felt it was only fair LOL.

Whoa lol.



I was much older at 13, and I had no idea that you had to shave the back of your legs (I lived with my dad for most of my life, so I never had a lady to show me etc etc) so, I shaved, went to school the next day and was made fun of because people could see the hair on the backs lol..yeah.



I'm not too sure when I'll let my girls start, haven't thought that much into it.
