My daughter is 8 years old. She is a normal, healthy, beautiful child. The problem? She’s decided that she’ll no longer wear shorts. Because it’s been really hot here a few times lately, I asked her why she wouldn’t wear them, and she responded by bursting into tears and saying that she was totally embarrassed by her hairy legs. I honestly don’t get it. She’s 8! Her leg hair is nothing more than little girl peach fuzz. I tried to assure her of this, and she assures me that all of her friends at school shave their legs. Dear god, I hope not. They’re 2nd graders, for God’s sake!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this, or how I can deal with this. There really isn’t any reason for her to be shaving her legs yet, and I don’t want her handling a razor either. Harborwolf thinks I should deter her by waxing her legs just once :eek:
