Once the child is old enough to recognize the choice they have with respect to piercing their ears, it is a good idea to talk them through the process and walk them through the options. Without asserting your opinions or choices, if your expresses interest in getting their ears pierced then take them to a store and show them the kind of earrings they could wear.

While parents might think teenage is the worst possible phase in their children’s lives, we like to think teenage is the most fun and free stage of life. Sure there’s studies and exams, and high school drama, but there’s also the liberty to experiment and design your own identity. As a teenager, you can go wild with your earring selection and no one will bat an eyelid. Choose your studs in shapes and symbols that are a reflection of your personality. Got multiple piercings? Well, just stack up on the studs. Got too many studs, but too little piercings? Mix and match. The beauty of wearing studs as a teenager is that you don’t necessarily have to wear them as a matching pair - so switch it up as you like!
You’ve left behind your wild teenage phase, but you’re not yet done carving your identity. This is the time to make a statement with your studs. Opt for distinct geometric shapes or silhouettes that are not only youthful but also sit well in a professional setting.
Well into adulthood, the thirties are the time when you’re probably juggling a million things and leading a hectic schedule that doesn’t allow much time to even express yourself using words, let alone make any kind of statements via your studs.
