If you've allowed your teenage DD to shave; but disallow her to shave her bikini line, how do you police this rule? How do you 'stop' her from not shaving? (considering that shaving isn't really a privilege compared to internet/phone/friends)

haha i agree it just bugs me when people try and control things they can't - e.g my friend's mom.

As a mother of two girls, I think this is one of those situations that you have to think there could be worse things. So she wants to shave her bikini line, if she is wearing swimsuits in the summer do you want to see her unkept? This is a very personal choice and I don't think by letting my daughters do or not do it is up to me, it is up to them. If she wanted to get a nose piercing or belly ring then these are things I would rather worry about. My advice is to not worry about it! Let your daughter make decisions regarding her body and the need to shave or not. We can't control everything and if you try you are certainly setting yourself up for some unnecessary teenage battles! There are far worse things that she could be doing!

If shaving her legs and bikini line make her feel better about herself i dont see why it should be a problem!

according to a lot of sites DD stands for "Darling (or demon) daughter" I've heard it mentioned here before. And a friend's mom won't let her shave it, but my friend (she's 14 but been 'hairy' since she was 10) is trying to figure out how to do it without her getting punished. Cause it is rather awkward.

How old is she? Personally I think shaving is a very personal experience, my teen has been doing it since 14 and I don't interfere, it's her body and so far no accidents!

Hi Emily. I'm not quite sure what teenageDD means? How old is your teendaughter? I'm not sure why I understand why she can't save her bikini line? I dont see a problem with it! What are your concerns?
