My friend is 14 and she doesnt shave her legs because she doesnt know how to ask her mom about it. She gets teased how can she ask her mom?

Report as

My mother wouldn't let me shave my legs in 7th grade n I was a cheerleader. My next door neighbor who was a wonderful woman my moms age showed me how. Years later when she passed away I asked her daughter if I may put something in her casket. I wrapped a disposable razor in a bag w a heart to let her know how grateful I was for her kindness to me growing up.
So I just started shaving and either my mother never noticed or didn't care. So just shave.;)

I had dark hair too. If not a razor she can use nair. But a razor works best. I don't know why moms make such a big deal out of shaving legs. My daughter Katie played basketball in grade school n up and I had no problem w it.

She needs to tell her mom exactly what you just said, and stress that she's getting teased about it.

She should wear some shorts around the house until her mom notices and says "Hey, umm, yeah, come on, Imma teach you how to shave those legs of yours."

She should just do it and no need to ask, unless it's some sort of taboo thing in the clan! :)

I think she needs to come right out and just ask her if shell take her to the store to buy some razors or nair hair removal because she doesn't want to be teased. Some things moms just know it's time to get like a training bra or deodorant and other things they need to be told...(period stuff, shaving supplies, etc.).

She should be able to talk to her mom about anything (sometime that's not the case) if not maybe you and or your mom can teach her.

No parent wants their child teased or bullied. She should talk to her mother.

Maybe you could teach her. But she might get in Trouble for shaving without her parents permission. Good luck.

Thats what im worried about...

Yeah. Well ask her to ask her mom if she can learn to shave and if she says no, well then thats her decision and I'm sorry but there is nothing you will be able to do about that. Maybe go with your friend to ask her. My mom would not let me shave either so I waited for a weekend when she was in a happy mood and comfortable and I showed her my legs and she showed me how to shave.
