Would you let your 5 year old shave her arms?

If your 5 year old begged for you to let her shave her arms, because she has lots of dark hair on them and the other kids tease her, would you? And would you shave them for her or lteach her to do it herself?

No because then the hair may come back darker and thicker!

Not shave but trim or lighten yes. I use this and it is very gentle.

I wouldn't let her shave them I wouldn't let a 5 yr old shave her legs either. Depending how bad it really was I might use a clipper and trim it down for her.

No!
I never knew anyone shaved their arms until here.
Anyway, too young to shave arms or legs imo.

NO! I am italian, and have very dark hair. I started shaving my legs at 6 because of teasing, but my family wouldn't let me shave my arms. Even though it was long, and dark. All throuh school I was teased, and finally, at about 16, I got tired of it and shaved my arms. Now, 12 years later, I HAVE to. It comes it thick and pokey, and black...just don't. Especailly not at 5.
