My daughters are 9 and 11 and haven't gotten any underarm hair yet. But, many of their friends their age have. My 11 yr old has a razor I gave her to start shaving her legs but says she is going to wait until the pool opens for the summer.

Well, I started shaving my underarms as soon as I saw hair, and if I remember correctly this was about 6th grade. I waited a little longer for legs - they already had hair so somehow it wasn't as traumatic to LEAVE them hairy. But as soon as a few sprouted in the armpits I had to get rid of it.

I remember when I was that age, and my mom told me I could not shave until my underarm hair came in. But my legs were SO Harry!!! So I shaved them anyway behind her back. I say its not to early. My neices started thier period around 10.. I got mine at 11.

I also don't think 10 is too early for armpit shaving, I got underarm hair at 10 and it also added BO so I shaved. I waited for my legs until I was 14 but only because I had very fine light leg hair, and even if I had not gotten permission I would have done it behind my parents backs.

If she has underarm hair, I think it's time to shave. That is if she's ok with it. I got my period at 10 but didn't need to shave till later. But I remember at that age all my friends shaved, even their legs and my parents wouldn't let me. I really need to though, my legs were so hairy!!! Kids can be cruel, I wouldn't want kids teasing her if they ever see she has underarm hair.

I think that when hair starts like that it means it is time to start shaving that area.

you could go with cream hair remover, which seems to last longer and may be less traumatic

hair means puberty, regardless of age...it's time

My daughter started shaving her arm pits at 11 when hair started coming in. she had a friend who got teased alot when she didnt. My daughter is now 12 but still does not shave her legs. she says she can wait for that but NOT the arms. Hair on your legs is always there when u are a kid but arm pits is not.

How is shaving 'traumatic'? I've never had any luck with depilatories and they definately don't last longer than shaving for me.

Shaving is so easy, honestly, I think she'll do fine!

I'm pretty open with my kids, so I would just say "oh well, I see you have underarm hair, if you'd like to shave it, here are some razors. I'll be happy to assist if you need help!"

I would almost wait until she brings it up. Or see if she makes a comment about her friends shaving. I wouldn't want her to be teased but I also wouldn't want to make an issue out of it. If her and her friends aren't noticing it yet, why push the issue?

I would bring it up to her. How often do we look under our arm pits? Maybe she doesn't know. And at 10 she could have just a couple. If there is hair I see no reason to bar her from shaving. It's hygienic.

My DD started getting armpit hair at.......wait for it......6!!!!!!!!!!! It was soooooo thick and she didn't want to wear tank tops because of this!! So she has been shaving her armpits since she was 6. She is now 11 and still does not shave her legs. She hasn't started her period yet (phew) even though most of the women in our family started @ age 9. (including me)

I think you should approach her and ask if she wants to shave. Let her know eventually she will probably want to but if she doesn't now that's ok too.

^ I agree ^ I also think that it's smarter to get her an electric razor (I'd recommend one of those wet/dry battery powered ones) to minimize the chance of cuts. It might also be time for "the talk" just so she's prepared for her period when it starts. My friend put together a cute little gift box for her daughter when she gave "the talk". She put in a packet of pads, deoderant, a starter bra and some nail polish. She told me they did their nails while she explained about using the pads and deoderant and the ability to use looking at nails instead of making eye contact meant they had an excuse to not make eye contact at cetain points of the discussion. She claimed it cut down on the "uncomfortable factor" immensely.

I agree with this. I hate that we teach girls that their natural hair is ugly and unacceptable - unhygienic even, though clearly it's hygienic enough when it's on boys. That tells me it's not about hygiene, it's about sexism in our culture.

If we want to conform to gender-bias and double standards that's fine, there are a lot of reasons to conform. But part of "the talk" should be acknowledging that pressure instead of presenting the issue as if grown women's bodies are by their nature dirty and gross and need correcting, as if that doesn't even warrant further examination, it's just an accepted fact.
