My DD just turned 12 and inquiring about shaving her legs. She just has a little fine hair. I am not sure if its still too soon. When did your DDs start shaving their legs? TIA.

    No daughters, but I asked my mom to start shaving at 12 too.

    She asked me to wait, but I didn't.

    I wish I would have, because the hair came back thick and coarse.

    I was 13, but had a lot of hair. Kids at school were calling me wolf.

    My oldest is 12..she has been shaving for a couple of years now. My 9 year old ( almost 10) has been shaving for about a year now. She has super thick hair and wanted to shave so I bought her the same electric razor her sister has and she started using it.

    If she wants to I don't see why you would stop her. It is not keeping her a little girl. I started at 11, I did not really need to either but all my friends were doing it. As far as going along with the crowd, this one is pretty harmless.

    I think it's different for everyone. 

    I also think that if your daughter feels that "the hair needs to go" perhaps it does.  :)

    It's important that she's comfortable with the way she looks.  If shaving her legs makes her feel her best, I'd say...Go for it.

    I have one that will be 13 in June and she has been shaving since she was 10.

    My other 12yo just turned 12 in March and she hasn't even started puberty and has no interest in shaving.
