Should piercing baby's ears be banned?
We've written a news story today about a new petition to ban ear-piercing for babies and toddlers. The people who've started the petition think it's 'a form of child cruelty'.
The petition's already attracted over 22,000 signatures.
But what do you think?
Do you think piercing a baby's ears is cruel and unnecessary? Or do you not mind it at all? Maybe it's a cultural thing in your family (my grandmother was Flemish and, for her, it was the done thing to pierce all her children's and grandchildren's ears when they were newborns)?
Do let us know what you think. We'd really value your views.
