  • I'd put the kibosh on that one. A 5 year old boy has no business making a fashion statement with an earring.
  • No...there's certain things (if I'm ever a parent) that I'm not going to okay or pay for. My sons earrings are definitely one of them. If he wants them, he can get the money and pay for them and look stupid on his own.
  • Not a chance! Was she a teen mom, by chance?
  • no way... im a girl and i didnt get my ears pierced until i was over 18! it is ridiculous especially for a 5 year old boy..... i think that it shouldn't even be considered! its ridiculous!
  • Some women think when you get a kid, you can dress them up like a doll. Could be a case for child abuse.
  • I think it would not only look silly, but it's wrong. The parent must be the same kind that allows their little boys to have "mohawk" hairdos, long hair, ugly long mullets, or little ponytails! Yeech! It's like they're trying to humiliate their child in public, on purpose. Lol.
  • I do not think I would, but that is them.
  • I would not do that, but everyone is different. I think it's wrong when parents pierce their infants ears - what if they never wanted them pierced in the first place?
  • I`ve seen alot of BABIES with pierced ears!I don`t really think it is right.If you aren`t careful they can get infected.Kids need to be old enough to care for them and decide for themselves.But that`s just my opinion.
  • No, no way. I wouldn't even consider it until he was 12 at the youngest and was getting good grades. 5 is just silly.
  • I would actually. I mean if a five-year old girl can do it...a five-year old boy should be abled to too
  • Sure; why not ? It isn't going to hurt anything and if the child wants his ear pierced .. Humor Him .
  • No. There's plenty of time for that when he's older, if he still feels the same way.
  • Haha, a 5 year old boy with an earring. Does he inherit the mobile home then or later?
  • no but i would let a five year old girl cause they like to look pretty . But not a boy . Usually boys dont want to get it done because they tink its just for girls. Id let them mak there own choice when there older
  • lettng people express their individuality is never bad even at an early age!
  • IF he's a smart 5 yr old and he wants it I say let him otherwise wait till he gets older to make that decision. It's just a tiny hole that give people and extra accessory options....ain't gonna end the world lol
  • No way. It looks AWFUL! The main point is though, how can a child at 5 know what he wants to do with his body? I'm guessing it was the parents idea to do this to the kid. You should let your child decide what he wants to do when he's old enough.
  • I think that you should wait until you're in your teens at the earliest to make permanent changes or additions to your body.
  • Minimum age 16 for either sex. And the kid pays!
  • So, wait, is this the same son that was suspended for throwing tantrums at school?
  • that is the age I let my son get his ear pierced. My sister let her daughter get her's done at 3 so why not let a boy at 5? He's almost 13 now, he still has it as do a bunch of his friends.
  • no i dont like it. especially on boys, i think it doesnt look right, they should at least be 8 to get ears pierced. And girls to that effect, if the boy later in his teens get his ears pierced fine, but no 5 is wwwaaayyy too young
  • In the case that he's a boy, I really can't say I like it. I don't like boys with pierced ears at all, because in my opinion it looks too,.... girly, I suppose. It doesn't look right. If it were a five year old girl, maybe it would be ok. I think for girls, even though it is young, it's easier in the long run because the piercing is less likely to be infected or close up, if done right. But, it is still pretty young,... - Anyway, that was my opinion.
  • a 5 year old boy, crazy.in England there is a saying 'to chav or to chav not' chav= trailer trash.
  • I wouldn't. His attitude may change as he gets older and he may resent the piercing. I would prefer he wait until he is an adult to make that decision, rather than make it for him.
  • Regardless of sex, I'd wait until the kid was a little older. I'd be concerned at age 5 they might not look after it well enough. I'd wait until they were about 8 or 9.
  • Well, If I had a 5 year old son I would have to say no! Not a fan of the look and 5 is a way to young to make such decissions. I'm guessing the parents are on the young side and think it might be cute. For me, my husband and I will run our house and make such decissions not my 5 y/o.
  • If it's what he wanted, I had to beg for three years 14-17 until I was so angry that I just did it myself. though I don't think a 5 year old would do that.
  • No thats far too young, i had mine pierced when i was 6 weeks old but would perhaps let my girls have theirs done when they start secondary school if they want to.
  • We bring our preconceived notions with us throughout our lives, being influenced by all around us. Fortunately, unless we're serving on a jury, we don't have to judge. "To each his own." (Though I would not allow my 5 year old son to pierce his ears, I'm sure this little fella is feeling thrilled.)
  • its a guy so no. now if it was a girl thats understandable but a guy no
  • No.. boy or girl it makes no difference.
