I agree with PP's... there is no way you could possibly know that...
And just because she is your daughter... DOES NOT MEAN SHE IS YOU AND SHARES ALL THE SAME LIKES!
SHE IS HER OWN INDIVIDUAL!!!
Baby or small children ear piercing hits a nerve big time with me. I personally feel earrings do not look right on small children or babies. I do wish some parents would keep more of an open mind before making decisions for their children just to decorate them.
My DSD's Mom pierced her ears when she was a baby and was so sad that she ripped them out. She couldn't wait to get them done again... She took her on her 4th birthday, WITHOUT even consulting my DH, by the way...
And so I had the ultimate joy of cleaning a screaming 4 y/o's ears on the days we had her so they wouldn't get infected... this was HORRIBLE! Not to mention the pain of hearing DSD cry out in pain, but to have to involuntarily be a part of something I am SOOO against.
No ear piercing for our own DC until they ask for it AND are old enough to clean them themselves.
