moms with boys need help

 My 7 year old asked me tonight if he can get his ear pierced when we go into town. I was shocked to say the least. I said I would talk it over with his dad when he gets home from work but I know his dad would not care. I am not sure how I feel about that. What would you do? Does you boy have his ear pierced and if he asked, would you allow him to get one?

I think 12-13 is appropriate

I'd let my DD pierce her ears at 6, so I suppose I'd let my son do the same.

I have worked with kids for over 10 years. Their perception of themselves is so important!!! Yes I would let my son. My son is 12 and I let him wear these god offal clothes because they are "in style" If they can't express themselves they can get depressed (not that I think that would happen over ear piercing) not to mention kids are mean to eachother and not all kids deal well with it. It also can always be removed. I personally would make him work for it like dishes or something to show he really wants it!!!

I see a lot of little boys with it done these days. I probably would say yes but DH probably would shoot that down.

No we would not let our boys pierce their ears.
