My daughter is 11 and seems to be self-concious about looks allready. She has very dark hair so her body hair is also dark. She had asked me this summer if she could shave her legs and underarms, i had agreed and showed her how and gave her razor, cream, ect. Now I have noticed she shaved the hair off her forearms? She told me she was bored and said she would not do it again. she also shaved her upper lip, I tried talking to her about other methods of hair removal, and that she shouldn't worry about body hair, there is supposed to be hait on these parts of her body. Isn't she just too young to be worried about such things? Any feedback of advice..I feel she is growing up way too fast and she does not seem to be sharing with me.
