Get his ears pierced? I've seen a lot of kids his age in his school with them done and honestly I don't really care if he's able to take care of them. Anymore as many guys as girls have them done including my hubby. What do you think and why?

Not at 6. Maybe at 13, but I don't like boys with their ears pierced

To me it's not an issue of boy or girl. I just wouldn't let them get it at 6 years old. My mother let me pierce my ears when I hit puberty. I think it just adds some significance to the situation and makes it feel special. When I got those earrings it was like an official, "Now I am a woman!".  I was 11.  Of course I wanted them earlier but looking back, I am happy that she made me wait and built it up.

I will say though, that I think elementary school is tough and for a little boy, he's going to get teased, sooner or later.

Yup I don't see why it matters if he wants it done he's the one that has to live with it.

 No I would not let my son get his ears pierced at a young age, He can do if he wants to at 15+

 no, going by the way my mom was, we had to wait until we were 12 to be able to get our ears pierced, same thing with my brothers. ive decided to keep that rule as well.

At 6, no. Maybe at 12 or 13 when he will take care of them himself.
