An 8-year-old refused to pierce her ears, and her dad turned it into a valuable teachable moment
Eight-year-old Adelaide Baker couldn’t stop talking about how she wanted to have her ears pierced. Naturally, her parents agreed – their daughter is old enough to make this choice.
When the girl turned 8, the family went to a local jewelry store. Adelaide picked the earrings she liked, and, just moments before the staffer was about to pierce her ears, the girl changed her mind. In tears, she told her dad: “I don’t want to do it.”
