    I go with what my own mother told us kids, we can have our ears pierced when we are old enough to look after them ourselves.

    Which is fair enough.

    Don't want to see a baby with infected ears or find out they have a metal allergy such as I did or go through pain just because it apparently looks 'good'.

    According to bubhub land the following classifies you as being bogan:
    Owning a strider
    Piercing children's ears
    Putting headbands on baby girls

    Feel free to add more...I'm probably a "bogan" and am unaware of other bogan traits (because the above mentioned things are normal to me).

    Apart from the ear piercing I am probably classified as a bogan seeing i own a coffee table (although its in storage right now), I have a strider and my daughter loves her headband (she's 19 months however if that counts)

    Don't like it. Don't approve of it. I wouldn't offer my opinion of it to someone walking down the street but if I'm asked my opinion directly I'm not afraid to give it.

    I'm confused with the coffee table allegation... I know many non-bogans with coffee tables....

    We use an old chest, does that count?

    I dont have a daughter so I guess I don't have to worry about this issue lol. But if I were to have a daughter I probably would just wait until she wants them done. It's something to look forward to, something thats hers. she can pick the jewelry and know how its done and how to care for it. I guess a new responsibility growing up?
    I just wouldn't do it so young because when the child grows up it may end up being uneven and have to be redone later in life. I'd also be worried about the stud catching on clothing, bed linen etc.
