    You just said a hole where it shouldn’t be.
    Personally I find bigots more offensive than piercings. 😉

    We never pierced how Daughters ears, we left that for her to decide
    But some cultures seemed to pierce kids ears when very young.

    My daughter had her ears pierced at age 7. However we went for a very small 18ct stud with just a .2ct diamond in each.
    No chance of her being mistaken for a chav.

    Never did my kids any harm

    The eldest even got a pearl necklace for my 40th

    does this seem to be just not quite right?

    It’s subjective, much worse things go on that aren’t.

    It’s subjective..

    Actually it really isn’t.

    Is the child old enough to give consent?

    Is the procedure required for medical reasons?

    Simples.

    Don’t think I’ve ever met a woman without pierced ears. Consent is not an issue, its a traditional symbol of femininity so get it done by a doctor when they are born.

    “oh I wish I’d never had my ears pierced” said no woman ever.

    So you’re against hair cuts, then? You seem to have forgotten a third question:

    Does it do any harm?

    Circumcision can cause harm, a small hole in an ear lobe doesn’t. Big difference.

    felt shocked, and really rather nauseated to see that her ears had been pierced.

    I think you may be being a bit too sensitive.

    Um.. err.

    Do you actually know what a chav mindset is?
    I think you’ve summed it up perfectly by that statement.

    OK. Let me put it another way. Is it an example of “good enough” parenting? Or “not good enough” parenting? I think the answer to the original question is “good enough”.

    Personally I don’t think its right, we took our daughter to a party one time and there was a young lad of about 2 years old with piercings, gold chain the lot. Our daughter was drawn to them like a magpie and it was only a matter of time before she grabbed hold of them and tried to pull them out as most 2 year olds seem to do. The enivitable happened, although another child grabbed hold of the ear ring and pulled it out. Thought it a bit unfair on the lad really. My wife hasn’t got pierced ears, so it might rub of on our daughter, although I doubt it.

    Would the pro piercers pierce their children’s eye brows?
    Putting holes in children for aesthetic purposes is barbaric.

    Well if you take that view, having sex with minors might be OK.

    Thankfully, I don’t take that view.

    Surely that depends on how high, or low, one’s standards are?
