So today at work (I'm a teacher) one of the 5th grade girls came in and she now has her lip pierced!!! My jaw about dropped to the floor. I'm happy she's not one of my students so I didn't have to deal with that today, but I guess the principal called home about it and her mothers argument was "well if girls can have their ears pierced, she can have her lip"
I guess I kind of see her side but ear piercings are much more the social norm. I guess it was a huge distraction to the other students.
Wondering what your thoughts are on this. There's no way in hell I'd allow this on my 5th grader. Is this hypocritical because I would allow ear piercing?
