Would you let your 6 1/2 year old wear dangly (sp?) earrings to school?

They are a little over an inch long. I try to let her wear whatever she wants so she can develop her own 'style', but I'm undecided on the earrings. lol

  • It wouldn't be appropriate. Young children need boundaries and guidelines. Learning what is appropriate will help her make decisions later.

  • No, I don't !!!! way too dangerous!!! i'm all for letting a child wear as they wish, but i only buy what i'm comfortable with them wearing...they can choose from there!

  • I don't see anything wrong with it, my daughter has worn them since she was 5. She loves hoops.

  • I think it depends on her activity at school.Is she very active? Are the children in her class touchy feely?Is it a day for PE? Is she a careful 6 year old. I did let mine wear them at that age but it depended on what was going on in school that particulatr day.

  • No. Have you seen what happens when they get yanked?

  • Yes I would allow my daughter to wear them. It's part of dress up play for one and two, if u forbid your kids to do too many things u r asking for trouble. If she wants to wear them in school and it's ok w/ the schools dress code/protocol she will wear them because a friend will bring her some from home and she will put them on in school. She will do it behind your back. I think it's best to know what your child is doing while you're not looking as opposed to when u r present.
