Boys and getting their ears pierced.

If you had a lets say 13 /14 year old son who was an excellent student, greate athlete, all around good kid and wanted to get his ears pierced, would you let him?

I would, just wondering what others think. I think it is a stereotype that only girls should have their ears pierced.

  • I would. Personally, I don't like the look of it on boys, but if he really wanted it, what would it hurt? If he behaved as well as you described, I'd think he deserved to be allowed something like that.

  • My 15 year old boy wants it more than anything. He is not a good student.

  • No, my 14 year old will not get his ear peirced. He is a good athlete with good grades. He also doesn't want it done at this point.

  • I would let him, I did mine when he was that young, he is 22 and still wears it, no harm in that, as lng as he doesn't go too big with the earing.

  • Well yeah, why not? Earrings are no different than rings or necklaces. I would let him get his ears pierced if he were my son.
