There are many who are of the general opinion of "wait until the child is old enough to make the decision for themselves.
Well, someone raised an interesting point about that in a thread on the Welcome Page and I was curious about opinions here.
"Whats the difference then when that child gets older and they want it done and their parents say no? It is still their body they should be able to make that decision, right???"
So, if you, as a parent, say no to a tattoo, a piercing, etc, when they ask to have one at 9,12, 15 or whatever, does the same argument, that it is their body and their decision, apply? Why or why not?
