Boys with Earrings?

What do you think of letting young boys pierce their ears? I don't think that girls should have their ears pierced before age 10 or so. It's strange to me that these days there are kindergarten boys with earrings.

Nope! And my DD is 8 and doesn't have hers pierced. Until she cones to me saying she wants it. I am allergic to all the metals they use so i want her to be able to tell me if there is a problem

My son started asking when he was 5. We said no because he wasn't responsible enough. We let him when he was 9. They lasted for about 3 years until he decided he was done with them and took them out.

I have multiple piercings, so does his dad and stepdad.

not sure if you can see then but my 4 year old has them he was dressed for a 50's dance here. my nephews have them and 3 of my brother inlaw's so i wasn't surprised when Charlie asked for them. he started asking before he was 3 waited a year before we agreed but he loves them. his 5 & 6 year old sisters have them done as well. his 8 year old sister does not want them. i left it up to the kids to make up their minds when they want them

I would not allow my son to have his ear pierced. Thank goodness he doesn't want one either.

 Not a big deal to me. My oldest son asked to have his done when he was 7 and I made him wait one year to make sure he still wanted it done. He had his pierced when he was 8 and wore an earring for about 4 years before he took it out and hasn't put it back in since then. He's 21 now. I don't mind an earring but I will not allow any of my kids to gauge their ears while they are living in  my home. An earring is easily taken out but a big floppy ear hole is not easily fixed.

I'm guessing all the boys I see with them have dads who wear earrings. We are not jewelry people and my son has never asked.

Not happening for either of my boys. But a girl wouldn't be getting hers pierced either.
