Dad stops parents seeing baby girl after they ‘damaged’ her with ear piercings
A father recently explained that he had banned his parents from looking after his child after they “permanently damaged her body” with ear piercings.
The bloke, who has a nine-month-old daughter, claimed he regretted leaving her with his mum and dad after they gave her body modifications without his consent.
Grandparents are often seen as the safest babysitters for little ones, so the man was devastated when his trust was misplaced.
Posting on Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole” forum the dad explained that he and his wife-to-be wanted to let their little one decide if she wanted piercings when she was older.
He wrote: "I was never into the idea of it being done as a baby when they can’t consent, like my fiancée parents pierced her ears when she was a baby and she always hated wearing earrings.
“Still doesn’t wear any."
But, he was annoyed because his parent’s kept talking about it and saying how cute she would look.
The couple pushed back that it wasn’t going to happen, but sadly they weren’t listened to.
He added: "When they babysat for us once they got one of my mom’s friends to do it and we were f***ing p***ed they went behind our backs.
"We stopped talking to them after that for disrespecting our decision."
The dad said: “Everyone was saying we were making a big deal and we can’t cut them out their granddaughters life over something like that."
After cooling down, the parents agreed to let his mum and dad see their granddaughter again, but only with one of them present.
He explained: "They won’t be left alone with her.
"That’s where everyone is still saying we’re being massive a-holes because we’re still punishing them over something that’s not a big deal and we’re treating them like children."
Even the man’s fiancee’s parents thought they were going overboard.

But, he noted: "We’re still not wanting to change our minds on our conditions so it’s pinning everyone against us.
"Are we being a**holes that we just don’t trust them alone with her and rather one of us be there always?"
And, Reddit commenters were on his side.
One wrote: "I wouldn't be leaving my child with them ever again.
“My mum cut my daughter's fringe and I lost it; this is another level all together.”
“They permanently damaged their granddaughter’s ears to put jewellery in, which can cause an infection and possibly kill the child if it was not done with sterile gear,” added another.
