My daughter wants to get her nose pierced but her dad said no: Advice?

Me and my ex-partner have an 11-year-old daughter who wants her nose pierced (school etc. are fine with it, I’ve checked) I’ve said yes but her dad has outright said no because ‘he doesn’t like piercings’ Am I wrong for saying that is not a good enough reason for saying no? I had mine done at 11 and I don’t have an issue with it, but would I be the ‘bad parent’ he says I am if I do go against his wishes and let her get it done? Thank you

I personally feel that it should be a decision made between the two of you; both of you should agree on it. If daughter gets it done and Dad throws a fit, that will create negative feelings toward Dad and creates triangulation.

11 is quite young for piercing in my opinion. Dad’s right on this one.

Fucking 11 years of age! Is that a joke👎🏻

Try again at like 16…
11 is way to young to be altering your face. They won’t even do it with parental consent until 15 at most reputable tattoos parlors.

No reputable place will peirce her nose at 11… most places its 14 with parental consent or 16 without.

What’s the purpose for an 11 year old to have a nose piercing?

If it were my child, I would tell her to wait until she’s 18 & can make the decision herself.

(And I’m not against piercings in general. I have my nose pierced. I was 19 or 20 when I got it done). And I have a daughter. But I think she is more than capable of waiting until she’s an adult.

I agree with her dad on this one!

My daughter was 16 when she got hers done. 11 is not old enough in my opinion. But I’m not her parent. Dad should have some say in it. Ask him to compromise and give you an age thats acceptable.

I think piercings and tattoos should have to wait till the child can legally sign for it themselves

11 is young. Kids that age want a lot of things, but a hole in their nose is way too young. How will she care for it and keep it from getting infected? Are those chances worth her 11 year old nose? At least make her wait till she’s 16ish.

11 is a little young for that but talk to him one on one Nd come to an agreement on a good age for her to get it done try and convince him to let her do it at 13

All 3 of you sit down and come to an understanding. Maybe for her 11th bday? Moms opinion shouldn’t matter more then dads if both parents are in her life.
