At what age is it okay for your daughter to start shaving their legs?

My daughter is only 9 1/2 but her body is changing and it's just a matter of time for her to hit puberty. She is starting to grow hair underneath her armpits as well. Thank you

If she's already hitting puberty, then when she notices and asks, I'd let her do it. My mom made me wait until I was 12 and it was very embarrassing, especially when all my friends started shaving between 9-11.

at 9 1/2 I wouldn't get the shaving started. Give it another year or so. When she starts her period she will be ready to shave as well.

Whenever it looks like it needs to be done and she is comfortable with it.

Do you feel she's young as in not safe with a razor, or is this 'ahhh my baby's growing up?'

I would always go for a razor over depillatories. Those things are full of chemicals and can burn.

well yes, but I feel that she is still to young. I'm thinking of trying hair removal first and see how that works.
