How Do I Ask My Mum to Shave My Legs?

I'm now 14 and have wanted to start shaving my legs for a long time now. I get way too nervous every time I try to ask my mum especially since I've been shaving my armpits using her shaver for years, but was too embarrassed to ask her about it. Now I'm scared that she'll ask about that as well and I'm not sure what I should say. I just want some advice about how to ask her.

Tell her you are growing up and growing more hair. You want to look well groomed, and most of the other girls in your class are shaving. If she doesn't want you to cut yourself, ask if you can use a depilatory instead.

Isn't it wonderful to get such good, supportive advice from so many ladies who have all been where you're at? The only (small) thing I can add, presuming your mum is a busy lady, is to ask if you can talk to her about something. Choose a time when she's not overwhelmed with everything, a time when she might have a quiet moment or two ... perhaps at the end of the day after everyone else has gone to bed?

Don't worry. It'll be fine.

Do some research on all the ways you might be comfortable removing the hairs (creams, etc) and show her what you've found. Ask her what she suggests and tell her you really want to remove them to be happy.

Don't be afraid to approach your mom and tell her your situation. I am sure she will understand because she was once in your position as well. Tell her how you feel and see what she says.

I assume your mom shaves as well. YOu could try hanging around her when she's going to do it and then express interest in your joining this feminine right of passage. Unless you have reason to believe she would seriously object she wll probably be delighted to help you out. It's a good bonding activity

liv4b99, I completely understand how you feel 100%! Come up to your mom sometime when shes not busy and ask, Mom, how old where you when you started shaving? Or, you might want to try, Mom, Ive been thinking lately, and hear me out on this.. I think I need to start shaving my legs. Im starting to feel uncomfortable. I am also a growing lady.

May I please get a razor and shaving gel? Only ask for the shaving gel if you want. Be yourself while asking this too. She was once your age. By the way, sharing personal hygiene stuff isnt the best idea, you never know how old your mothers razor is. Dont be nervous either! I have faith in you!! <3
