For you moms with girls what is a good age to start shaving their Legs... Dd came home from school in here P.E CLOTHES because someone stole her pants ( yes im super mad about that i called the school) but some of the kids told her she a hairy legs SHE 11... so today I went and got her some Nair.. I think that might be easier for her to do..

I started in Jr high and most girls had already started by then.

I think my daughter was in 6th or 7th grade...but she also had really dark hair on her legs...AND she's 23 now and kids didnt do those things as early then as they do now.

11 is fine..esp. if it bothers her.

I was 10, but didn't have my parents permission. My sister is 11 and my parents let her use Nair.

11 is fine, i think.  i started shaving at 11. i would push it down to 10 if my daughter asked.

I would get her an electric razer before I would do the Nair.  Nair is pretty hard on the skin.  Fries the heck out of me.  My DD is almost 8 and has already been teased about her hairy legs.

yup... i remember gym class 5th grade and noticed all the other girls had shaved legs and i basically demanded to do it... i was 10, a few days before i was 11... that is normal - actually so many get their periods at 8 -  shaving legs at 11 is nothing now... they could actually have dark hair and need to --- same with armpits!   dont let her get made fun of - it is no big deal!
