Husband wants to pierce our daughter's ears?!?
I do not think it is right to make that type of decision for a child. If my daughter comes to me at a later time and asks for pierced ears, I'd take her myself once I was sure she understood the work involved in caring for pierced ears. My husband doesn't understand what the big deal is. He says if I'm willing to take her when she asks, why should we wait.
Except he's missing the point of the child consenting. I don't understand why we can't wait. If it's supposed to be permanent, why not wait until the child is old enough to decide instead of making an executive decision for the child and have them regret it and let the holes close up later?
Who is right here?
