        MY DD was taking a bath. She was going on 3. I stepped out of bathroom.. I know bad mommy.. Came to find her with one leg up on side of tub just shaving away!! She was so proud of herself and I was choking back laughter. Learned quickly that kids really are little sponges and watch everything you do.
        MY DD definitely has alot of my German/Swedish genes.. she has quite hairy legs. Think she will be wanting to shave early in life. Then DS has the same baby fine if any hair legs as DH. DH has these incredible sexy legs with maybe 3 hairs on each leg.

            DD asked me around 12 but I said No, you have a few more years to go. Finally a few yrs. later I said go ahead here's a razor, Oh Mom, I've been shaving my legs a few yrs ago and never told you.

              IT WAS KINDA LIKE THAT WITH TAMPONS AT MY HOUSE. NOW I LOOK BACK AND WONDER WHY IT WAS A BIG DEAL FOR ME TO LET HER USE TAMPONS. I STARTED LETTING HER USE THEM IN HIGH SCHOOL, AND SHE HAD BEEN USING THEM MOST OF THE SUMMER WHEN SHE COULD GET THEM!

                It's been a very long time, my daughter is 42, but if I remember right, it was middle school, ( 6,7,8 grade ) I would say 11 years old. She has very dark brown hair, so she needed to shave. Funny thing was that somehow she must have not understood what I was trying to explain to her. She shaved and after a few days she came to me and pointed out that the hair was growing back. I said, yes, ok, what is the problem ? poor thing, she thought she would shave once and that would take care of it, forever ! LOL, little did she know that she just started a lifetime procedure. We still laugh about it to this day.

                  I agree with the others, when it bothers them. I think that my oldest was in 6th grade. Maybe it was the summer before.

                        Whenever they felt it was necessary. My 3 DDs had a hairy dad and at least one was no more than 10.

                          I will go with the Majority here and say "When SHE is ready"....My Aunt tried to shave her legs when she was a young adult. My Grandmother beat her until she bled. She told her that God would not have put it there if he wanted her to shave it off.............My Dad got beaten too because he tried to "doctor" her wounds......... My Grandparents were very strict Southern Baptists...............Guess shaving your legs was a sin, but beating your children was A-OK.........

                              ok, well my dd is 9 and has already started menstrating. Plus, she has an incredibly hair father and italian genes. So, I am just waiting for her to say something. I know it is coming soon, because well, she is incredibly hairy with dark hair.

                              By the way, how did you explain the whole tampon thing to your daughter. I still think my little one should wait, but eventually she may want to use them. I do.
