My daughter is 8 and has a typical Hispanic girl's mustache. She has been getting teased at school because of it and came home it tears yesterday. Last night I gave in and took care of the problem for her. I am worried that by doing this I am encouraging her to be vain. would/have you allowed you young daughter to remove/lighten her facial hairs?

I trim my daughter's eyebrows with a little electric trimmer so I won't make any mistakes. Nobody wants a uni-brow. The hair doesn't grow back so fast anymore so I do it very rarely. The lip too. I used a hair removal cream for sensitive skin. It's not vain. Think of it as part the whole hygiene routine. Both things I do for myself now but I didn't do them at 12. Once I started with my girl, her level of confidence went up.
