get a belly-button piercing when her parents forbid it? just curious.
Never live under the yoke of someone else. If you live at home, pay rent. Always buy your own stuff and never borrow money unless it is absolutely needed. This way: Nobody can have power over you if you don't owe them anything.You're an adult, so yes. BUT be ready for the consequences. If you're "dependent" on you're parents (home, food, tuition, etc), they have the right to take any/all away from you if they want to...because you are an adult & they are no longer responsible for your care.
It depends on which position you take. Each side has their own reasons. On AD you'll probably get more support as a parent.get a belly-button piercing when her parents forbid it? just curious.
i agree should respect the parents views,i sure her parents will run her down to ER if it gets infected thats what parents do,thats proberly one of their concersOne of my sons is 18 and still lives at home...he likes tattooes...and has 2...but feel he shouldn't get anymore until he moves out on his own....needs to save his $$...We have argued over it a lot...But I stand my ground.
If you were my daughter and lived at home at age 20, feel you would be expected to follow the rules and wishes....And until you moved out on your own, then no matter how your parents feel, it's up to you.
Was it your place or your mothers?I was emancipated minor the day I turned 18. So none of my parents could speak for or force me to do what I did not want to do. They basically relinquish their rights.
I remember the day I came home and my mother saw a small part of my tattoo on my leg. She near beat me to death. LMAO But I had my own money, my own car. I was independent and taking care of myself. They got no say. After some time, she stop being mad at me.
I remember in HS, I didn't have to take a paper home that needed a parent's signature, because I was over the age of 18. Everyone else in my class had too.
So as long as they are over 18, they are legally able to make their own decisions. Whether the parent agrees or not. Makes no difference.
I understand some family cultures are different than others, and I respect that.
I have one but I never show it. For me, I liked the look, I was mature enough to follow instructions on the care, and it healed without issues...but again, it was for me and no one else. I think it's better than putting a piercing where a potental employer can see (eyes/nose), or ruin your dental work and gums with a tongue ring.... Of course I waited until I was 30 too, and aside from traditional ear piercings, I have nothing else, tattoos or otherwise. I think the problem with teens is that they don't think things through...like how much after care is involved and how they'll look in twenty years with facial pierces or tattoos that are on the neck and face...scary how little people actually research something before they go ahead and do it....Of course, if you don't show off your belly button your parents they might not even know about it but I suppose that would defeat the purpose of having one.
I was living in my mother's house at the time. But it really does not matter. I was over 18. I moved out when I was 20.Was it your place or your mothers?
