My boy asked and asked for it, based on my earrings and his dads studs (one in each ear).
I have done my best to prepare my son, telling him that it will hurt and that he might cry when it's being done. Also I've told him about how I will need to clean his ears all the time for weeks and that it might sting... -But my boy still wants it and (his dad having both ears done and some boys at school having one or both ears done as well) I don't think it's a good argument to tell him that earrings are just a thing for girls.
Anyway; planning to take him to have both ears done (what he's asking for and which I personally prefer the look of, rather than just one), knowing that he's afraid of needles, I worry that maybe he might "freak" and be surprised that it actually does hurt and maybe don't want to go on having both done after all.
Do any of you know how to expect him to react to having it done or any advice?
