Been there done that! My mom wouldn't let me shave until I got my period. (Thank God it came in January)Trust me, although you may go through TONS of ridicule, you'll live through it! (Did I mention I'm going into eighth grade?) And she still won't let me shave, I'm only allowed to smooth away and nair. Its no big deal, you'll live through it. and trust me, she may actually have some good reasons. Listen to the girl who lives in south Florida and for 3 years would ONLY wear jeans in 85 degree weather! hope it helps!
P.S. try to talk about non-shaving products. Like nair or smooth away. They may take longer to get the hair off, but its worth it!

The same happened to me.
People have noticed my dark hair (I'm European) ever since I was in 2nd grade.
It was horrible, and many of my friends didn't understand why I wouldn't wear capris, shorts, or skirts in the summer.
Finally, when we had to go to the pool, I refused to wear a bathing suit.
My mom tried to get me to use Nair, and then shave.
But I don't like spending unnecessary money, especially when it's not exactly super-abundant, and my childhood has been ruined already.

My mom got me a razor without me asking, because I got my first miniskirt. She taught me how to use self-tanner, too. It would suck not to be able to shave!

If you can't convince your mom to let you shave you should ask if she would be ok with you using the creams that are out there. Nair has a great product, but there are plenty of other ones. They work great for most people, and it's not the same as shaving. My mom lets me use this stuff because I'm kind-of a clutz and she doesn't want me to hurt myself shaving ^-^' hehe.
