I shared my shaving experience with my son (6th grader), and it was awesome to watch him take in the advice...
no blade was used by my son!!!
  • don't *press* down!
  • get a good lather on that brush!
  • North to South first, ear to nose second, nose to ear third
  • smaller strokes with the razor head

Awesome. Not only does it create a memory for both of you, but I think if they get familiar with the gear under supervision they won't be as fascinated by it when you aren't around. It's worked for mine anyway. Razors, knives, power tools, firearms, whatever. If they can handle them under supervision whenever they want, they don't get as curious about them when you're not around.

Both of my sons (11 and 16) have shown a strong interest in wet shaving. My youngest likes to "practice" with an old cheapo brush and my EJ89 (without a blade).

The older boy has already asked me if he can have my unused razor, a brush and use my creams.

Of course he can!Biggrin

Wow. Good show gents. I am looking forward to the day when I get to show my son how to shave. He turns 3 this year, so I have a little while. Guess it gives me more time to build up the shave den Wink

The training of my oldest has begun....

[Image: IMG-20120423-00003.jpg]


Showed him how to whip up a lather with some T&H Ultimate Comfort and a T&H brush, put an Astra in the EJ89 and walked him through 3 passes. Post shave of alum, Proraso pre/post cream and PdP balm. He enjoyed it. Biggrin

That is so awesome! And a great experience for both dad & son(s). I remember teaching my boys (now 41 & 36), but dang, never got a picture Sad - just the ones in my mind.
