If their nipples are showing through their shirts, then you probably should start thinking of getting them a bra. They can wear tank tops under their shirts to hide their budding breasts, and some tanks have another built-in layer. But if they're still poking through, then you should get a bra.

Show her how to shave if she has body hair and feels the need (being teased by schoolmates) to begin shaving. I wouldn't make her start unless she really wants to, because then it's a lifetime chore.

My stepdaughter just turned 10, but she has had hairy legs for a while, and getting hairy armpits. She's shown some concern about when she should start shaving, but has not asked to learn yet. I'm guessing in spring when she starts wearing shorts and tanks she'll probably want to shave.
