Im 11, almost 12! I shave my armpits this summer, than before 2 or 3 months I shaved my pubic area beacuse it was REALLY hairy, it was going out of my underwear all the time! Than week after that I shaved my legs too! Bit I didn't tell my mom any of it because Im not feeling comfortable to talk with her about those things! Now my hair is getting darker and I think I have to ask my mom can I start shaving! Was I too youmg to shave? And how should I tell her all that?
Please, I REALLY need help!!!

mom was a girl to don't forget.......lol.......talk to her, if you really can't maybe a older sister or aunt or grandma..........11 is young but I understand, my older daughter is blond so she didn't start till say 15 but my younger daughter has very dark hair and was always hairy, legs and pits started young also.......even her eye brows were very bushy...it bothered her......we talked and I said ok eyebrows we can tidy up just enough, under arms and legs I showed her how to shave....but I warned her not to do it often, maybe every couple weeks only......Pubic area really shouldn't be messed with much....put bathing suite on and do only what you see outside the area, if hair is long use scissors, Be careful..... ......hope all that helps
