Are your daughters ears pierced? If so, how old was she when you got them done?

  • My dd is almost 5, and does not have her ears pierced. I've always had the opinion that she can get them done when she asks, and once she's old enough to responsibly help care for them. That could be anywhere between now and 10 years from now. But it's her body, so it's her decision. I couldn't imagine piercing her ears when she was tiny.

  • I decided that my daughter could get them as soon as she decided she wanted them and then it happened that she is developmentally behind so i imagine it will be a while before she asks

  • We got pur DDs done when she was abt 19 months old. She is the girliest girl you will ever meet, and she often admired my "pretties" as we call them. At 19 months she said "i want pretties". We told her it would hurt, and she said ok. We took her in, she cried for about 2 min, and never pulled them or anything. She loves them.

  • I got my daughters ears pierced on her 2nd b-day, she cried for a few mins, but then when she saw them, she was thrilled. :)

  • No, they are almost 5 and 2.5. The oldest has asked but changed her mind when she found out it will hurt. The younger one has never asked. I would like for them to be older before they make the decision.

  • My daughter is 5 and she wants them, I'm all for it, I'm just curious if I should wait so she doesn't rip them out by accident or something!
