Is it bad that My 12yo. DD. shaves her legs and everything else down below?

I knew She had been shaving her legs but today I saw her shaving everything else, She said she feels better like that. I told her to stop. Is that normal? She was getting pretty hairy.

  • Leave her alone. There is nothing wrong with what she is doing. It is a personal choice. I would tell her that when the hair grows back down there, it is very itchy!!! It is not hurting anything or anyone.

  • I"m an old, but from talking to my neices who are in their late teens, it seems that is the thing to do now. I"d let her go, it won't hurt anything.

  • I don't understand that! I hate shaving my legs period much less anything else! I did my feet and toes once. :) And I do trip for bathing suits and for hubby sometiems, but it feels yuckys to save and I get bumps. Nothing wrong with it, it's her choice. But I had heard that the hair is there to help prefent infections -- I'd imagine in today's society it's not as funcation kinda like wisdom teeth :)
