I'm the dad of two girls (6&2) so hopefully this is something I won't have to worry about for a while! My wife talks about shaving, etc. around the kids, but I'm more concerned that this is a direct result of "airbrushing" and "photoshopping" done in the media that makes it look like all famous people have flawless skin.

Disclaimer: So you don't the the wrong idea, this article is about waxing the legs, armpits, arms, face, etc. It does talk about the pubic area, but does not soley focus on it!

Would YOU let your little girl be waxed?

It's an unsettling trend - children as young as ten having their body hair removed to copy celebrities. So why do their mothers allow it?

I do not think that children should wax anything. They shouldnt be worrying about there appearance. They should be acting like children and playing but it seems children are growing up to fast.

I did not even click on the story to read it because my immediate answer is NO! My 4 year old has seen me shave my underarms and knows I shave my legs and when she asked me about it I told her it is something grown-up women do and when she is a grown-up, she can do it too. I'm glad she listened to me on this one, so far. Because she also sees me put on deoderant and insists she needs some! And she has snuck in my room and put mine on before....she'll come to me and ask me to smell them, lol.

My girls are 7 & 9 and know that I shave my legs and armpits but have never asked about doing it themselves. We don't emphasize glamour or photoshopped crap around here. In our house, your true beauty is your character. Today our 7-year-old wore a pink skirt and a red shirt--totally DIDN'T match but she loved it. So that's what she wore. My girls don't have any clue about fashion or trends or what's cool, what's not cool, what's in style, out of style, or whatever. They wear uniforms to school so they don't have that pressure to compete with other girls and they don't even know what the word "boyfriend" really means.

The longer I can keep it this way, the better as far as I'm concerned.

No.
Unless...
There have been a couple little girls at school who really do have 1 eyebrow across their face. I'm not talking about a little hair in between the brows, I mean one, solid, dark eyebrow. If they came to me crying and asked to have it made into 2 eyebrows (aka remove some hair in between, I would let them. I wouldn't say ok to shaping or anything else, anywhere else. In these extreme cases and when it was THEIR idea, I would.
