Shaving Legs?!?

This is probably weird but i'm eleven years old... no hate....
Okay so I'm of Indian descent so I have black hair. My mother and I aren't very close. I have already gotten my period. I kind of wanted a bra and my mom bought me a few, but, she was the one who insisted on it. The hair on my legs is definetly visible, at least when I am sitting I can see it. During August, I could slick the hair down with lotion and it would go away. Not anymore! In winter, I don't know why but I shaved my legs without permission! Most of the hair has grown back, but, not at the ankles, and there are patches of no hair. HOW SHOULD I ASK MY MOM!!??

Are you being teased at school for having hairy legs? You should not be in too much of a rush to start shaving. Don't worry about the patches of no hair. Sometimes clothes that rub against a spot too often can remove the hair. If you want to talk to your mom about shaving, just find a time when you can talk alone and come out and ask her about it. Tell her you're worried about having this hair on your legs, and you want her to show you the right way to shave it. If you shave wrong, you get more cuts and ingrown hairs.
