I could be wrong, but I am not sure that is the case here. It sounds to me like the piercing was done with a parents consent, but not by BOTH parents.
This happens to me a lot. One of my step-daughters had her real-father give her Creatine. So what is Creatine...In their quest to run farther, jump higher, and outlast the competition, many athletes have turned to a variety of performance-enhancing drugs and supplements. Creatine is the most popular of these substances, believed to enhance muscle mass and help athletes achieve bursts of strength.
When her mother and I told him that we did not want OUR FOUR YEAR OLD
to be taking body building drugs, he was like, "it is my daughter, I can do what I want if she likes it." How do you co-parent with a moron like that?
If this is the case, then I am sorry because it really sucks when two parents cannot work together in the best interest of the child.
