Our teenage daughter started shaving her legs in year 8 – first year of high school, age 13.
Our teen son is year 7 (age 12), and starting this year, that is now high school in Queensland. He wasn’t conscious of his facial hair until one of his Grandmothers started teasing him about it a few weeks ago. Is 12 too young to start shaving? He does have more facial hair than his peers, but it hadn’t upset him until her comments. We were planning on waiting until he was grade 8 and then showing him how to shave correctly, but now he’s worried about it, I’m not so sure. Any advice?
