    Should my six-month old daughter get earrings--why or why not?

    I am against it. I do not like the idea. However, I want to hear from anyone with experience with baby girls and I have found plenty of anecdotal and scientific reasons but her mother is incredibly persistent and I really have no say in it in the end she will eventually do it. I would like thoughts however on any negatives and or positives.

    Generally I'm wary of poking holes into babies for aesthetic purposes, but mothers will be mothers.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I think any sort of mutilation without consent is wrong. Would you give or allow her to be tattooed as well? Show so balls as the dad and say no, if you do not agree.

    Is she old enough to make the decision herself and drive herself to the store and pay to have her ears pierced?

    Obviously the answer is, no. That purdy much sums up my opinion on the matter.

    How did I know someone would say mutilation and claim have no balls? Back story: her mother is a woman. Also we are not together so as I said either way she will eventually do it if she really wants to I am just looking for a good way to scare her out of it.

    Please don't.

    It is non-consensual. That is the obvious reason. But another reason is because of how very young children are.

    I was a baby girl who had her ears pierced. I struggled with infections for years, because a child that young simply can't care for piercings and parents don't have enough eyes to wash them every time a kid digs in the mud, ya know?

    Eventually I became upset my mother had had my ears pierced, and took them out. Even at 6, I had resent that she had done it without my input and they caused me so much trouble. I had them re-pierced years later, and I'm much happier with it.

    Is it that important that you force her to conform to some gender role so passers-by know she is a girl? Is it worth physically injuring your child without their consent? That's what this comes down to.

    P.S. I am someone with piercings, tattoos, and who puts value in bodily art. I am not anti-piercing in general in any way. But I believe it should be completely consensual.

    If she does not have sole custody of your daughter she muct get your approval or she can not do it. Send her a registered letter with a return receipt stating that you do not want her to do this. If she does you have a record and you can take legal action. If you do not have joint custody it could be difficult. I am guessing that you do see your daughter. This is a legal issue and I am sure your daughters mother does not want to go to court over a pair of earrings.

    It's not your decision and it's not your wife's decision, it's your daughter's decision and she's clearly not old enough to make it yet, so I say wait until she is and then decide.

    This is the thing. In order to do this, it becomes a big production for either one of us. Then after I spend $500 to get the ball rolling just over a pair of earrings she could just take them out and go "Oh look you just wasted $500 you're an idiot." That is my hell.

    Also CarlF here is the thing about the whole decision thing, that is fine and I would rather it be her decision. But my 6 month old daughter isn't deciding anything for herself for quite sometime so this is very small in comparison. I just do not like what will be the inevitable inconvenience of it happening.

    Also Mistress "physically injuring" is even funnier than the "mutilation". In reality it will hurt her for a small amount of time, less than a shot would. She needs no nothing to show she is a girl. At 6 months, she is the prettiest baby you have and ever will see in your life:
