Asking My Mum To Shave?

I am a 13 year old girl and I really want to be able to shave. My legs are becoming hairy and my armpits are too. A while ago I asked my mum, but she said my hair was too fine and is not noticeable (it is) and she walked away. Since it's summer I really want to shave because we wear shorts in PE and all the other girls shave.

Any advice would be great! Xx

If I were you I would sit down with your mum and have a daughter/mum talk. Explain the situation and how important it is for you to start shaving, find out if she shaves her legs or under arms, and ask her how she would feel if she were in company and was afraid to show her legs or raise her arm.

Your Mom may feel you might be wanting to shave a little too soon. It is the majority of your life once started and she may be wanting you to hold off a little longer since your hair is fine and light colored; not so noticeable. Now that it's there, it won't go away and will continue to grow and thicken in the area. Perspiration odor will be more prevalent and you are a young lady who cares about hygiene especially now you are needing; not wanting which are two different things. Needing to begin feminine hygiene in such areas that makes you cleaner and odor free as not to offend others especially in PE where physical activity is performed.

Sweating produces odor that is an obvious factor and you don't want to be embarrassed or offend others. Being cleaner is a good thing. That's how I would speak to my Mom about the topic and see if it changes her mind. I would not state that "all the other girls" do it. That's really not what a Mom wants to hear as a solid explanation as to why you feel desire to shave. Good luck with your Mom/Daughter conversation.

Since you talked to her awhile ago, now is present so maybe her thoughts will change. I'd sit her down with you and have the talk again.

Talk to her again and tell her it's uncomfortable. Since summer brings on heat, this could also be a breeding grounds for bacteria; let her know :)

She may not want you to cut yourself. Ask if a depilatory is ok

Honestly I had the same convo with my mother, came to no good satisfaction, so I just up & did it. Sometimes it's best to 'ask forgiveness than permission'.

That said if you have a good realtionship with your mum and she doesn't have some weird charge about her little girl 'growing up' (usually the reason for these issues) then defo have a convo with her first. Once she realises what a social liability it is to go around all hairy I'm sure she'll agree
