What does your age have to do with it? Yes, she is legally a child. That is the law whether or not you like it.
Why? It's the truth. Nothing wrong with that.
Like I said, you are old enough to know better, and this thread is not about you.

She just wanted to know how to convince her parents to let her stretch her lobes. If you want to advise her on that, fine. But telling her to disobey her parents is not your place. Parents and teens have enough problems without strangers encouraging their kids to disobey and rebel. Protecting their kids' privacy (such as addresses) is a major problem now. That is exactly the reason why many parents cut off their kids' access to the internet. They can't trust the people that their kids contact.
My age was brought up by you. You're the one who stated "you're old enough to know better."
