Plenty of experts say that young girls are being pressured by the media and manufacturers to grow up too fast and be sexy way too soon. As proof, they point to padded bikini tops marketed to tweens and even makeup and thong underwear aimed at 8-year-olds. Well, now they're up in arms over a new trend where spas are pushing young girls to wax their upper lips, underarms, and bikini lines. Some are even running ads that offer half-off all waxing services for girls 15 and under. So, is that pushing girls to grow up too fast, or is there a need for girls that young to get waxed? Supporters say that for some girls, there's definitely a need. For one thing, girls are hitting puberty 3 years earlier than their grandmothers did and some are as young as 7 years old! And of course, along with puberty comes excess hair growth. Supporters also point out that waxing isn't about being sexy. For young girls, it's about feeling comfortable because an 11-year old girl who's hairier than the other girls her age is a target for bullies. Even when it's 98 degrees and everyone is wearing a swimsuit at the pool, a girl with excess hair would rather stay covered up. The people who are all for it point out that most salons won't work on underage girls without a consent form that's signed in person by a parent or guardian. And most parents are okay with it. In a recent survey, most parents said age-12 was okay for girls to start shaving their legs. And 30 percent said it was okay for 14-year-olds to wax. What age would you let your daughter get waxed, if you would even allow it at all? People are chiming in about this one: - Marianne W. - My 12-year-old daughter just started getting bikini waxes. She's an athlete and wears short uniforms, so she needed it. It's a little wax, who cares? - Shelena W. - A bikini wax for a child? Inappropriate on so many levels. Who's looking at a child's bikini line anyways? - Colleen B. - If a girl is hairy and bullied, shouldn't she be able to do something to make her life easier? People, it's just a wax job - there's nothing sexy about that. INTRO: Spas are pushing young girls to wax their upper lips, underarms, and even bikini lines.
