Ok-
my daughter is going to be 17 next week and I just found out that she got her tongue pierced a cuople of weeks ago-

first of all- I think it is gross-

second- she did it behind my back and we have a pretty close relationship.

third- I'm a cool mom and can't understand why she didn't ask me-

now, I 'm not sure how to handle it-
she is a 4.0 student and a basketball star-
I normally don't have trouble w/ her besides back talk-

I'm thinking I will just show her how disappointed I am and she how she reacts to me-

??????

anyone have anything similar happen to them w/ their kid?

If it were my daughter, she'd have a forked tongue after I ripped it out.

I thought having a 15 year old daughter was fun <_<, this ISN'T giving me something to look forward to!


First off, I gotta ask, how did it take a couple weeks for you to notice?


Second, since you have such a good relationship, you need to take a private moment, maybe a car ride, & express YOUR feelings!

I sure know that "I" would!!

You didn't notice her mumbling?

I won't bring up the "why guys like girls with pierced tongues" thing.

I can't believe that I didn't notice either!!
I talk to her before school, after school etc-

my second reaction was just that-

"why didn't I notice?"

my 9 year daughter is the one who finally saw it-

lots of people have them, but maybe you can scare her with some stories see link above.

obviously whoever did the peircing wasn't checking id, i'd try to find out where she got it done and file a complaint. You have to be 18 to get your ears peirced don't you???

I'm not a parent, but I would be very unhappy about this

Awww, dont let your mind run wild, I doubt she got her tongue pierced for THAT reason. she sounds likea good kid


I don't have my own children but I can definitely relate to being 17 and slightly <_< rebellious. At least it's something she can take out if she wants.

1. She probably didn't ask cuz she knew you'd say NO.

2. You are close? The only thing I can suggest is sharing with her how bad it made you feel that she went behind your back.

3. At 17 I guess you just have to hope that your kids make the best decisions they can for themselves. I'm 30 now and 17 seems so young. It certainly didn't feel like it at the time though.

4. Being a young adult is the time in her life where she will learn the most from her mistakes or what she witnesses first hand, not really so much from what others tell her.

By NO means am I an expert on raising kids, just sharing from my own experience.
