    Is it too old to shave? No? Then it's not too old to wax. What's with the stigma against waxing? The only way it's different from shaving is it lasts longer and is a bit painful...

    Never too young to remove the scourge of hair from a female's legs and bikini area. Should always be smooth and soft.

    Who cares?

    We started wearing stockings in 7th Grade and therefore started shaving our legs then. It wasn't a problem (except we were expected to clean the tub then too lol).

    if you're old enough to shave your legs then you are old enough to wax. I personally use wax on my bikini line because it doesn't cause irritation. Waxing may be more painful but it lasts longer and gives better results

    If they're old enough to shave, and 15 is wayyyy past that, then they're old enough to wax; age has nothing to with it.

    I started shaving before I was 15, so what's the big difference between waxing and shaving? I mean, I started getting my eyebrows waxed when I was 14.. so I think 15 years old is definitely old enough to make those kind of decisions. Sure, it's more painful but a 15-year-old can handle it if they choose to
    It's not a big deal

    If they have body hair at a young age and want to remove it why not, is not like is Botox or some other medical procedure.

    If you can shave when your 10, then you can wax when your 10. I mean, shaving is practically just as dangerous, the difference is that it's less painful.

    I've been shaving since I was about eleven years old. It was never a sexual thing. It's just that our American culture portrays women with body hair to be unclean.

    It's just grooming. My exes sister was not allowed to shaved (she was 12 at the time) and she had HORRIBLY furry legs that people in school tormented her about day in and day out. She'd have to change into PE clothes for gym which was a uniform of a tee and shorts. She would regularly attempt to miss school to avoid gym days. I think when your kid is trying to miss school so they aren't teased its time to hand them the razor. It was obviously not helping her schooling. And it had nothing to do with boys, she didn't even like them at the time.

    12 is too young to shave as well. I am thinking from these stories more and more that homeschooling is the way to go. We think its ok to allow peer pressure to encourage our children to look sexy when they are 12. The best solution is to just cave to the pressure? What if she was ridiculed daily and tormented for having small breasts. Would we just cave and give her surgery? No. Children should be children. Yes.... Homeschooling. Looking into it.

    I don't it had to do with "feeling sexy" in her case. It had to do with feeling "normal". She was teased because she was different, and her parent's refused to allow her "conform". Which is an issue within itself, but we're not discussing bullying. We're discussing appropriateness. When the basic demographic is light skinned children with little to no light hair and you are a chubby tan girl with thick black leg hair you have to understand why she wanted to control the one different thing that she could. It really does hut to think of how she was made to feel. That she felt pressured into changing herself. But is it really less harmful when you realize that at a later age? It's apparent in society. It's apparent at most of our work places, stores, parks, and even in most of our own homes through media and other sources.
    There is obviously a huge difference between breast augmentation and hair removal. Stating with the statistics. There are a over 630,000,000 women in America. It looks like its roughly 3% or anywhere from 250,000 to 340,000 (including re-constructive surgery, cancer patients, etc) women each year get breast implants. However, today, 92% of North American women (13 years and over,) routinely remove their leg hair. not including those creepy pageant parents who...

So I simply have to disagree with that comparison.
    Also, I agree that homeschooling is a better, but it's a lot easier said then done. Especially giving the financial toll it has on a household. Her mother was a construction worker, her father a janitor. Just enough to pay their mortgage and a few other bills. You tell them its a better deal to quit their job, skip out on the school they are paying taxes off, and lose their house because their daughter is being teased.
    If you can do it, good for you. It's a wonderful option, but its not easily attainable for everyone. In fact, I'd consider it a luxury.

    Also, great article about this from a different perspective: http://www.kveller.com/mayim-...

    Shave/wax...its ok. Some girls hit puberty early. Some girls are hairy than others. Wearing stockings or jeans is sometimes uncomfortable/ itchy. And what about wearing tank tops?

    Women wax because men will see them naked.

    There is no reason a 15 year old should be getting naked for a man.

    Wait until you are 18 then you can slut it up as much as you like.
