Teaching a girl how to shave

I had her put on her bathing suit and get in the bath. I used a disposable razor with the cap on to show her how to do her legs and when she had specific questions I ended up shaving my arms to demonstrate. Lol!

This was never necessary with either of my girls. They just did it when they felt the need to do so.

I never taught them. They saw me do it, and just did it. We shave our arms.

I bought my girls electric razors..they are 9 and 12 ( in 2 weeks) so I don't allow actual razors yet.

We did it in shorts on the edge of the tub. And yeah, I'm sure they can figure it out themselves, but parents are supposed to teach their kids stuff, right?

Exactly!

My mom didn't teach me, I had never seen it done, and I tried shaving with a dry razor on dry legs. Ouch!!!! I still remember the pain.

I’m the oldest of 5 girls. I taught most of my sisters how to shave.

I don't think she's ever seen me shave.

Do electric razors do a good job on legs? I've never used one.

They do just fine on my girls.. they both shave. My youngest is super hairy and it does a fairly good job on her.

I think my girls had seen me do enough of a quick shave at the edge of the tub to figure it out on their own... I think I just gave them a few words of caution and that was it.
