crazy mom or just hip?

My sister let her 14 yr old daughter get a belly button ring. I say she is (was) too young for this, what do you other moms say?

  • Sounds like she's trying to be her dd's friend, not her mother.

    Unacceptable at that age imo.

  • My Oldest girl had her nose pierced at 13, eye brow at 14, a few more on her ears at 15 (14 total) and her belly button when she was 16, the only reason she did it (belly) is cause my 15 year DD wanted hers done but didn't want to do it alone, so I took my DD's and one 14 year old friend (with parents permission) to get the bellies done. You need to look at the child and thier level of maturity, there is a Lot that goes into the care of the belly or it will get infected easily. Oh and my oldset is "stretching" her ears this year (16) gosh they are ugly, but there is a lot worse she could be doing.

    Just cause some wouldn't do it that young doesn't mean it is wrong, I am mom first, but you can still be your childs friend!

  • I wouldn't allow it if I had a daughter that age. I have a 14 yr old sister and I would probably kick her ass if she got that done. haha But to each his own.
