So a Nephew I know is currently under the age of 13. However, he has prematurely grown a beard (a few stubble hairs) One day he asked me “can I shave my beard even though I’m Jewish because I’m under 13?” The reason he asked this is because his schoolmates have been mocking him for his premature “beard”. He is very religious so he has decided not to shave – but he has been having thoughts about shaving because of his schoolmates mocking him for his premature hair growth.
