When should girls start shaving?

Experts agree that there really isn't a specific age at which girls should start shaving their legs – it’s a tough question that parents have to answer on an individual basis. Some girls show an early interest, but most girls don’t start shaving until middle school. Many parenting groups agree that as long as your daughter is old enough to do it safely, you should let her shave her legs. Learning to shave takes practice. Our advice is to ask for advice – from Mom, Grandma, your favorite aunt, or a trusted adult to help ensure the best and safest first shave.
