  • I don't think I'd consider it before 10, after 10, probably whenever she expressed the desire to. I however, only have boys at this point, all under the age of 3, lol.

  • I think it really depends on the child. I was being made fun of on a daily basis in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade because I had very dark, thick, and curly hair on my legs. It was very noticeable.

  • Right now my daughters have to wait until they are 12. But if they end up having really hairy legs and truly feel uncomfortable with hairy legs I will go with 10ish.

  • depends on her leg hair (if it is dark and thick she might not be able to waiit until some certain age I had in my head), and her friends, and her desire to shave, and her maturity.
