How to teach a boy to shave his private hairs. My son (14 yr) is started having the hairs at his private parts, but he is scared to do the shaving!. Now he is just doing trim with scissors. How he can be taught to him for shaving?

Ev Witt none of my children were uncomfortable with us bathing them or them being nude in front of us until they were 16 going on 17. My oldest is 22 years old and we saw him naked until he was almost 18 then he got shy and wanted his privacy. My daughter is 20 at the age of 15 she didn't want her dad in the bathroom while I was bathing her again we respected her. My son is 18 and when he was 16 my husband and I made the decision to allow him to bathe himself he never asked us to stop. My youngest son is 16 and we just stopped bathing him again it was our choice my son wasn't uncomfortable with us seeing him nude

Why on earth do you think your son needs to have his pubic area?

From your other posts, you seem overly involved with your teenage son's genatalia. It is actually creepy and bordering on sexual abuse.

If pubic hair is so unhygienic then why is it there? It is supposed to be there so leave it be.
Nelly: that is very strange to be bathing your children for such a long time. It was your responsibility to teach them how to wash properly, not do it for them. Very creepy.

Nelly Pires, are you back with your over the top sexual exploitation of your teens? You disgust me.

I really think that you sheltered them too much and did not let them have the chance to learn to do for themselves. My kids bathed themselves from age 6 onward with help when necessary. My son did not like people seeing him nude at all after he hit his late single digit ages. When he was about 13 years old, he had emergency appendix surgery. The next morning he was doing well enough that the nurses decided to allow him to have a shower. One offered to help him get in and and wash. He was not comfortable with that and that left me to help him. He did not even want me to do that either but he was not able to stand on his own without at least someone there to be of aid. I told him it was up to him if a nurse did this or I did because he was not able to tend to all of the shower on his own. He let me do so. That was the ONLY time outside of being a young child that I ever bathed him because it was a medical necessity. Kids by the age of 6 have a good idea of how to bathe themselves with help if needed. They need to learn about privacy and modesty and so forth.

Ev Witt no my children aren't special needs. Neither my husband or myself were comfortable letting our children bathe themselves. I didn't think that my children were bathing themselves properly. We bathed our children daily until they turned 13, after that we would bathe our children on alternate days and I found that on day they bathed themselves it was always a quick shower. Once they turned 16 I was confident that they would bathe themselves properly.

Nelly--your kids should have been doing their own hygiene once they got old enough to know how to wash their hair and wash their own bodies....like age 6 or so on their own. Why did you bathe them until 16? Were they special needs?

Sorry for misunderstanding you, I trimmed my teens pubic hair with an electric razor I would bathe them and just let them soak in the tub for a few minutes before I trimmed their pubic hair usually once every 2 weeks. I bathed my children until they turned 16.

Hi kay and nelly,
Thanks for replying. I know public hair normal, but if it grows more it will create hygiene issues, that is why i wants to cut it or shave it. I am not saying, there should not be any public hair.

Pubic hair is normal. Why not just leave it alone? But I guess that is up to the one with hair, some just don't like it. There are YouTube videos that teach a guy to shave his area down there

Shaving private hair isn't necessary. It's supposed to be there. Leave your son's private parts alone and tell him it's normal to have hair there.
