At what age do you think it's okay to get your child's ears pierced? Or do you wait until they can decide?
I think when they are mature enough to keep them clean, then they are old enough for ear piecing, imo. :)
I personally would wait until they can decide.
I want to get my DD done but I am not sure about it. I can't decide to do it soon or wait until she asks to have them done.
Quoting Lilys_mama1222:I pierced dd ears at 3 months. I wouldn't change any thing other then the place I got it done at
I'd say wait until they say they want it and understand that it does hurt. Not enough to scare them away, but make sure when they say they want it that it will hurt. When I have a daughter if she tells me when she's 4 she wants her ears pierced I'll tell her that it'll feel like someone's pinching your ears, show her what I mean by pinching her earlobes with my nails (not horribly hard, just enough to replicate the feeling), and if she's okay with it then I'll go out and do it. But personally I won't do it until she decides she wants to. That's only me though.
I would say 12 or 13
I'd personally wait until they are old enough to decide.
