The 6 week holiday is the perfect opportunity to have your child's ears pierced before starting or returning to school... but would you let your child have theirs done?
Minxy is nearly 8 and a half and despite a lot of her friends having their ears pierced she is far from keen on the idea. She loves jewellery, making and wearing it, yet the thought of a needle making a tiny hole in her ear lobe does not appeal to her at all!
I feel as though she is at the age where she is old enough to make the decision herself as to whether she wants them done or not, and if she did I would let her get them done now before heading back to school in September. She is old enough to be able to care for them herself and change them herself so I would be happy for her to get them if she wanted to. However, I often see babies and toddlers with little gold studs and rings and I always wonder if there should be an age limit for them like there is for belly button piercings.
How do you feel about ear piercing in babies and children?
If your child has theirs done how old were they and what made you decide to have them?
