  • When she's old enough to say "Mom, I want my ears pierced" and she's able to care for them herself with minimal supervision.

  • When my brother and sister-in-law had my kids for a few weeks, they got my daughters' ears pierced without my consent. The girls were 5 and 7. Once they were back with me my DD's had infected ears and were not comfortable with the piercings at all. So I let them take them out and heal. MY policy was that I wouldn't ever force piercings on them. I would wait until it's something they chose to do - after all it's their body and they have to live with it for the rest of their lives. My mom got mine pierced when I was three. By the time I was in high school, I stopped wearing earrings and the holes have healed.

  • They had to wait till they were 12 and it was something to look forward to. I personally was 16. My mom back in the day was 28 with three kids. My gramms ...never.
