Ok this one is gonna sound funny but my daughter who is 7 is hating her hair on her legs and arms. To the point that she refuses to wear short sleeves and shorts or skirts. I know part of this probably started b/c her dad playfully calls her and has always called her monkey-butt. (don't ask i dont know why or how it started she is my step-daughter and he called her this before i came along) She is olive complexion and has very dark brown hair and it is very thick already on her legs and arms. The real verbally complaining came about just recently when she was in the shower and told me that she knew that she was really turning into a monkey cuz she was so hairy. At that point i kinda just laughed it off and told her that wasnt really happening and she was very pretty. She replied with well i still dont look like you( i have blonde hair origionally and not much on my arms). Well then it has progressed into her being severly distraught every morning about what to wear so she can cover this up. She doesn't get very many options b/c she goes to a school that requires uniforms so dressing up isn't a option. I thought about trying to find some models that had dark or thick hair and showing them to her but trying to find any proved fruitless. I am concerned that this is gonna turn into a complex and really need some advice!!!
