Take your 12 year old daughter to have her eyebrows waxed?? She's asking but I'm unsure if she's too young?

Thank you, I was thinking of taking her on Monday, we have a day together, but this is all new to me so wanted to check what others thought.

Too young in my opinion.

She’s 12 years old. Why does she want it done? It’s sad that at just 12 years old she already feels pressure to look a certain way. It’s teaching her to be ashamed of her body before she’s even fully developed.

At that age, I was out riding my bike and playing with my friends, not worrying about every detail of my appearance.

Oh yeah, how can a 12 year old bear to look in the mirror and see surplus eyebrow hairs! It’s such an important issue. Maybe she should also get botox, fillers, and plastered with make up at the same time?
Ffs get a grip. Are you working for the patriarchy? Is this the message you want to give a young girl about the priorities for modern women?
“It’s all about your looks, dear - don’t worry your pretty little head about anything more intelligent or important”.
Tell her to stop gazing at her eyebrows and get a life, some hobbies and enjoy what’s left of her childhood!
