My 14 year old daughter told me not that long ago that she has been shaving certain areas for a while. At first I was upset because I thought it is something that should be done as an adult...only because I don't remember doing it at that age. However now it is very different for me. I asked her why she chose to begin to shave and she told me. It made sense and I had to allow her to feel comfortable too. I don't want her to be out with friends and be embarrassed at certain things about her body. I am blessed that we had talked about it with each other. There are some girls that mature earlier and may prefer to begin to keep themselves "tidy" for lack of a better word.View Thread
