My daughter is 6 and has been begging me to get her ears pierced for over a year. I think it is a "right of passage" and not to be done on a whim. That said she is a very clever little girl, who knows her own mind. I've told her to wait untill she's 8 and then I'll consider it. Am I being unreasonable?. TBO I'd have them done sooner, but I want her to appreciate the fact they are going to hurt nad may take some time to heal. Your thoughts please.
I always said to my DD1 she had to be 16 but then gave in and she had them done the summer holidays when she was 13 she is now 16 and has 7 piercings in her ears and her belly button possibly a reaction to being made to wait as she has had them all done except the 1st since she left secondary school!
DD is 10 and has been asking for a couple of years. I keep telling her 12 in the hope that she'll forget about it but I imagine sometime in the next 12 months I will cave in. They are not allowed to wear earrings at her current school so we have been able to use that excuse so far.
I'm afraid I think earrings on small children are awful.
