What age to start shaving?? For boys

My 13 year old has lots of Italian blood in him....so this makes his hair really dark. He has a little mustache and my husband thinks he should start shaving. Me on the other hand....well I just don't know if he should or not. So......what age did your boys start shaving?

  • If it's time, it's time. Some boys need to earlier than others. I have 2 nephews, who are not blood related, one doesn't have to yet but the other does every couple of days. So if you think he's ready, get him started - if HE'S ready.

  • My son also has Italian blood in him ... he started shaving at the beginning of 7th grade (though it was not a daily thing).

  • I didn't say he had a lot of hair because of the Italian blood....just that it's really dark

  • Shouldn't the decision to shave or not be his, and dependent on whether or not there's hair to shave?

  • Let him shave when he wants to.
    DS is part American Indian and has almost no hair. At 16 he only has peach fuzz.
