  • I started in 6th (11-12 years old) grade but started growing leg hair in fourth grade. My mother did not have any of the little girl to young lady talk with me. I honestly thought I was turning into a monkey.

  • very personal preference. I was in 4 grade. My mom was in sixth. My BFF won't let her daughter until 6th where as I say 4th or 5th... It kinda up to you and what your daughter wants. If she is responsible then I would let her when she ask (within reason) with supervision.

  • Crap...my mom made me wait until 10th...yeah, she is weird.

    I would let mine do it as soon as they asked and mentioned their friends did it. It isn't that big of a deal and it is more embarassing to not have it done. Not sure what the norm is these days, but, DO NOT make her wait too long. Terrible....

  • I started in 3rd grade. If she has fine light hair, there is no reason she couldn't wait til later in life. However, for girls like me, with thick, dark long leg hair... the earlier the better...

    My aunt was in 2nd grade, again, dark hair...
