My daughter is 11 and in all these situations my take has been to let her decide what she wants to do. The preteen/teen years can be tough enough, if shaving will make her more comfortable then so be it. I just make sure that there is always a good supply of fresh razors in the bathroom so she doesn't even have to ask.
I understand this point - didn't read the comments on the article so I'm not certain what was said.I agree this doesn't belong here in debate, but I have no disagreement with the opinion that it is an appropriate topic for INV.
I already stated that I felt this story didnt belong here and was better suited on the general health forum.You were the one who stated that this story didn't belong with vaccine discussion:I was just curious why you stated that this story never have been posted with vaccinations when you are clearly posting on the other thread. Did you mean that it didn't belong in debate because I would agree with that statement.
In school they have "book clubs" that are actually their reading groups so they read together and discuss daily. The books aren't always favorites of my girls but they always read what is assigned to them. Fun reading at night has no restrictions
