5 Reasons I’m not Piercing my Daughters Ears

Even before I had a child I have always had many opinions about different topics. Piercing my daughters ears is one of the big ones.

I have always felt very strongly against this but I never actually thought of the reasoning behind my decision.

I thought about this the other day. I came up with 5 reasons that resonate with me.

Here are the 5 reasons I will not be piercing my daughters ears myself:

  • If the earring is pulled it can tear the earlobe
  • No matter how clean a piercing place is, there is always a chance of infection
  • I have holes in my ears and I haven’t worn earrings in years.
  • It hurts, a lot.
  • If my daughter wants to get her ears pierced, I want her to make the decision on her own. Its her body, she should have the choice if she does or doesn’t want holes in her ears.

I will let her know the pros and cons of having earrings and taking care of them as they heal. It will be her duty if she so chooses.

I hate that I didn’t have a choice in the matter. My mom got my ears pierced when I was a little under 2 years old. I have not won earrings since high school. I am now 33 years old. I have these holes in my ears that pretty much act like black heads. They fill up with dead skin cells that then begins to hurt if I don’t remember to regularly clean them. Since I do not wear any earrings there is nothing blocking the hole.

How many people actually wear earrings anymore anyway? I feel as though many people decide to wear other types of jewelry these days. I think that a nice statement necklace and bracelet can go a long way. But, that’s just my opinion.

I know this is not a very long or interesting post. But, the topic was on my mind and I wanted to get it off my chest.

I would love to know how you feel about earrings, and what age you think is appropriate to get them. Does your daughter or son have any piercings?
