maybe 10/11/12.  Whenever she is uncomfortable about it.  She is 7 right now and still very light hair.  She is my hairy monkey  LOL.  Still has a bit of hair on her back but again light colored so not noticeable.

I think this is a good age too. My DD is 9 and she has some what hairy legs and she notices she has more hair on her legs then some kids in her class. She complains her legs are hairy, but they really aren't that bad or noticable. I just thought 9 is a little to young to suggest shaving... God i'm not ready for all this lol

 I dont believe its an age thing I believe its an as she needs to because she has visible hair on her legs thing and wants to. I started at 10 in 4th grade, my 3 daughters were approx that age too.

My DD is now in 4th grade and I can tell her leg hairs are starting to bother her. They really aren't that bad.. I'm not ready for my little girl to be growing up 😩😫😢

 awww well she's still just as grown up whether she shaves her legs or not but she will feel better about herself and not as self conscious if you let her shave them. Just my humble opinion. Plus in gym class or in summer if other kids notice they will start to tease her.

I think I was about 12. I will let her when she starts to notice it and be bothered by it.

I had to wait until the last minute with my older girl, as she is not as skillful with her grooming as her little sister. I had to be sure that she could handle the razor and be ready to do it as often as it needs to be done. She is 13 and we began this year. I didn't shave until 12 myself and that was just about right, as I was kind of awkward too. My 9 y.o. wants to now, but I am going to make her wait, not because she wouldn't be able to, she's very good at grooming, but I don't really think she needs another step right now and she's a lot blonder than sister or me.
