I'm Starting to Grow Facial Hair

What do you do when you start to grow hair on my face? What do you do when your friends start smoking? The Kidzworld Locker Room has tips on how to deal with moms that care about hair and friends that start puffing.

Can I Control How My Facial Hair Grows?

I am 14 and my mom is one of those moms that cares too much. She has me kind of nervous about shaving. I am starting to get facial hair but not a lot. Is there any way I can get it so that it isn't so visible? Please give me something I can do.

Shaving Tips

The best thing you can do to get rid of that facial hair is start shaving. Your mom has probably never shaved her face before (at least, I hope not) so don't be nervous about shaving just because your mom said something. (Sometimes when moms "care too much," they can kinda over-react or exaggerate - try not to take it too seriously when they do that.)

When guys are going through puberty, their facial hair usually grows on different areas of their face at different rates. Some parts of your face will have lots of hair, while other parts won't have any at all. This may be embarrassing but there's not much you can do to control how much hair grows on your face. So, grab a razor, some shaving gel or cream and always shave with the grain.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
