Why do some parents not allow their children to have pierced ears?

Intelligence and improved education.

I have no idea. Two holes in the ears are not going to make my daughter any less successful.

Religion sometimes. Or they just don't like piercings.

Some of them don't allow it because they believe that their children should make that decision for themselves, and that they aren't capable of making it at a young age, or maybe because they think their child won't look after it. I however, would.

...and some parents pierce a 6 week old baby's ears. Silly, if she's old enough to ask for it I'd get my daughters ears pierced. Between 4-8 is a good age.
