Has any moms gotten their 4-year-old daughters ear pierced? I really want her to have it, but I don't think she will go through with it.

My mother wouldn't let me get mine done until I was old enough to look after them myself and that was 8 for me. I haven't had my daughter done and I won't until I know she can look after them.

On the other side, even though I was old enough to look after them, the right one hit a nerve and I couldn't clean it properly and had to take them both out and get them done a couple of years later. Be careful where you get them done and by who.

No. My daughter won't be getting hers done until she is old enough to look after it. A friend of hers had hers done and she ended up with it badly infected because she got some sand in it playing in the sandpit. I just don't believe they are responsible enough at this age.

I also notice this is about YOU really wanting her to have it done. Is this about you or her?

Now I am in my late 30's and can't wear ANY piercings at all! So the 3 holes I have up each ear lobe are now useless. My body now rejects all piercings.

I would ask her if she wants it done. If she is ready, go for it. If not, well wait until she is. Don't force it on her.
