My 12 year old daughter Hannah has been asking me lately if she can shave her legs. She is in 6th grade and will be going into high school next year. I'm worried she will be teased if she has hairy legs. Her hair is very fine and barely visible. I really don't know how to answer her. Her older sister Angelina is 17 and started shaving when she was 14 so I'm wondering whether 12 is too young for Hannah? She appears to be quite insistent, so I don't know if saying no will have a bad effect on her. I just want my kids to be happy and sometimes I really don't know the best way. Please help me. Should I let my 12 year old shave her legs?
