Would you let your 3yo SON....
 
get his ears pierced? My 3 yo son wants his ears pierced. He is now officially the only member of our family that doesn't have their ears pierced (although I do not wear earrings) and ever since YDD who is 9 months old got her ears pierced he wants his done. He asks a few times a day and I am actually kinda torn.
We are what I guess would be considered an alternative type of family so tattooes and piercings are things both my husband and I have and I have no problem with guys having their ears pierced (obviously since my husband has his pierced) I guess I just don't know what I am looking for, I just don't know how to handle it. let him get them pierced or don't and make him wait...but until when?

ETA: Keep in mind in this situation both of my girls have their ears pierced. DD1 had hers done at 2 months old and YDD just recently got hers done at 9 months old. DS is the middle child and he is 3.

No but then again, we have not allowed our 16 year old to pierce his ears either. I, personally do not care but my husband does so in order to have a united front I have not undermined his decision to not allow piercings or tattoos.

Yup. I would.

Plain and simple. I don't view things as boys or girls stuffes


Eta - age doesn't make a differance to me.

See that is how I feel so I don't know why I am even torn. I let him go out wearing hair bows and headbands when he asks to. I honestly don't care. I also feel like ear piercings are something that he can choose to not wear earrings if he goes through a phase of not wanting them etc. Piercings aren't like tattoos ya know. I just need to find a place to pierce his ears that will have some less girly earring options.

I wouldnt, because he is only 3.
But I also would not allow one child to do something and then not allow the other based on sex.

Well his sisters have both had theirs done before they were 3 so that would be a double standard in this situation.

No I wouldn't. I wouldn't let DD get her ears pierced at 3 either. In general, I wouldn't let a boy but definitely not at that age.

Take him to a tatto parlor. They should have less girly options. And that is how I feel about earrings too
