  • Hubby started shaving at about 15, but he was growing a full beard by that time.

  • when hes interested in gurls...get an early start so he wont go embarrassed later cuz he didnt know how...whatever you feel comfortable with...whenever he asks you or dad about it...

  • too funny....
    my 15 year old has me to shave his face because he is afraid that he will cut himself baddly!! On the good side, his oldest sister gave him an electric razor for Christmas! Yippie! He has been shaving for about a year now. ( He should have started before because he had a full beard)

  • My 12 1/2 year old shaved the dark peach fuzz on his upper lip Sunday before church. He used his dad's electric razor. I asked him why he did it and he said it was embarrassing for it to show.

    I almost cried because my little boy is growing up.
