My daughter grace is saying she wants gages with all her heart. My husband and i have said no many times because we researched it and read that you could get a staff infection, but she threatens us, what should we do.

I fail to see how a "threat" from a kid would have any bearing on my decisions for said kid, except to say that any "threat" from my kid would immediately result in an absolute NO decision, as well as restriction of privileges.

Or, as I'm fond of saying, I agree wholeheartedly with Dove, and the rest :-)

I agree with the others.... How old is she and what is she threatening you with here?

I would also say no. She can do what she wants at 18, but until then it is your rules. If my child were threatening me.... they would lose EVERY privilege and fun item they have in this house for a LONG time. They wouldn't be seeing much of the world outside of their bedroom, school, and church until they realized full well that threatening their mother was flat out out of the question.

They're so ugly... why anyone would want gauges in the first place is beyond me.

Gauges are one of the few things I would actually say no to. That and eyebrow piercings. Hate them both.

If you are firmly against it, and she wants it so bad...depending on where you are, it is usually legal for them to do it at 18. She can have at it then.

And yeah, how is she threatening you?

You are the parent so I think you need to stand your ground. let her know that while she is in your house you won't allow it and when she turns 18 she can choose then.
