  • Stand firm... it starts small and grows. 9 is too young for eye liner. They need boundaries and things to look forward to. UGH- they start this stuff too early.. good luck Momma!

  • i would say NO shes too young! but im sure it wouldnt hurt anything if u do decide to let her. she isnt doing it for any wrong reason she just wants it for the picture. but then again if its for the pic she will want it for other stuff too so u do have think about that too.. YOu could make a deal with her let her wear it if she cleans the dishes or something lol idk i dont have a 9 yr old. sry

  • My daughter is 9 as are all of her friends, I don't know of any one of them that is wearing make-up. I think that 9 is way too young to start. you ask if it really would have hurt anything? It wouldn't hurt anything or anyone but may start a pattern that you just don't want to begin at this young age. It is possible also that her school may have rules against make-up before a certain age. I would sit down and explain to her why you think that she's too young for make-up, and set an age with you and your dh that you will allow it to begin.

  • My dd is 8 and I would never consider letting her wear eyeliner anytime in the next, oh, 5 years or so! She is WAY too young, but you do need to talk to her and find out why she thinks she needs it. Make sure it isn't a self esteem issue.

  • i think the child just wanted to show of her eyes & make a pretty picture the more i think about it, she has beautiful green eyes & wanted to high lite them a little, she also straighteners her hair, brushes her teeth ALL the time & is actually a very pretty girl.she just cares what she looks like to herself. she takes better care of herself than some grown women i've seen.she's also a vegetarian she just cares about her body, so sry i asked but i think i'll monitor her make up choices & yes let her wear a lil lip gloss & some eye liner for special occasions ...
