Many believe that the best age to pierce a girl's ears is when the child is a young infant. For many, this is a cultural decision. Others claim that the younger a child is, the less able they are to remember the pain of getting the piercings done. They also say that a child who has had earring from a very young age is less likely to play with her earrings since they've been a part of her everyday life since she was too young to mess with them.
Another set of moms have a set age, where they get their daughters' ears pierced. For some reason, the most common ages these moms decide on is 3 and 5.
A growing number of moms believe that girls should get their ears pierced when they themselves ask to have it done. These moms let the kids themselves decide what the right age for getting their ears pierced is.
And of course, there are still plenty of parents who are deciding to not pierce their daughter's ears at all.
In the end, this is a very personal decision. The only correct answer is the answer that is right for you and your family. Trust yourself and go with your gut feeling.
