The parents that let there kids do that are pathetic. A child should learn to be comfortable with themselves and how they really look. If a girl has hairier legs or a unibrow at 10 or 11, you’re telling them theres something wrong with it by getting it waxed. It sends the worst message about self-image. Obviously as an adult or late teen you change your appearance but the hope is that this happens after some kind of self-acceptance. Doing it too early IMO is just begging for image issues in the future and really shallow kids!

Agree. My oldest just went to his schools 8th grade dance. Wow! I couldn’t believe the girls, their clothes, hair, makeup, etc. I am a young mom, so it wasn’t too long ago I was at prom and it was nothing like this monsterous event. I font know what I am going to do when my girls get older…but o know not let them do what they want! I am the mom!

What if you have a child who is very self-conscious about her body hair? Or her facial hair? I’m not saying that it’s right to let a 10-year-old get a leg wax, but there are kids who are bullied by their peers because they have bushy eyebrows, or dark hair on their arms. I think that if it’s something the child wants, the benefits and drawbacks should be weighed before impulsively bringing them to the salon.

I was a child that was self conscious about my hair. I’m indian so as a child it was very thick. My hair is very curly puffy and coarse in its natural state. Did I get teased? Sure. It wasn’t the end of the world. Today I love my curly hair. What if my mom had let me straighten it? Then I’d never have learned to like the way I look. I’m sorry but kids tease each other, about every little thing. I’d rather teach my child self-confidence and tough skin instead of fixing the perceived “problem.
