OMG!!! She almost shaved off her eyebrows!!!
My daughter will be 11 in a week and she is a hairy child. I don't say that in a mean way at all. She's beautiful, has long dark hair that's very thick and heavy. She has lots of hair on her arms and legs. Her dad is from Mexico and has alot of hair. I'm Puerto Rican and I have no hair on my arms at all, I'm lucky to have hair on my head lol! So I'm sure she gets it from his side of the family. So, the issue is that she has thick dark eyebrows that, to me, look beautiful bc it looks like she gets them waxed, they're not all over her forehead.
Apparently her "friends" in school told her that they were too bushy and she needed to shave them. So, guess what my daughter did? She decided to try to shave them with MY RAZOR for my legs!! She almost shaved them off! I was so angry and asked her why she did it. She didn't want to tell me bc she was embarassed. But she finally did. Little girls can be HORRIBLE!! So, anyway I told her that they might have said that to her bc they were jealous and that she needed to talk to me the next time something like this happened.
BUT, it got me thinking: What's the best age to start shaving and waxing? She's 11 and I know she'll start asking me to shave her legs. I have no idea what to say to her. I think she's too young but I might not have a choice. Any advice?
