My daughter doesn’t like to wear shorts or skirts anymore because she says she has too much hair!!! She is only 6, okay 7 in January!! I don’t want my beautiful daughter to stress out about things like this…what should I do? Do I let her wear pants all year round? Do I work out the hair situation? Or should I make her wear the shorts or skirts, like my mom did? (Shaving is not an option- I think she is too young.)

My daughter is 7, & worries about the same thing. Shaving/bleaching is not an option. I told her to get over it, because she is only 7, and that she should learn not to care what others think, especially if they are rude enough to make a comment about it. I don't want my daughter having insecurities at such a young age. Luckily, she got over it.

I would let her wear pants whenever she wants to. I think bleaches are damaging to the skin. I have sensitive skin and I have experienced some of them. Forcing her to wear shorts seems almost cruel. Kids are hyperaware of their bodies and other kids can be mean.

7 is too young for shaving, but you're willing to put a harmful chemical on her skin? No way. I wouldn't do it. Have you considered an electric razor?
