I just skimmed thru most of this, but did I miss on what the ex's reason is for saying no? Is it just to be able to say no? Because there is absolutely no reason to, if she already has 2 ear piecings anyway. Im not sure why he was even asked. Do you ask him if she can get a new pair of shoes?

The girl gets straight A's; if she wants another ear piecing, let her get it. If he pisses and moans about it, tell him to go pound sand. Theres a reason he's an ex.

I read the whole thing but am trying to figure out why the ex was consulted in the first place.

I’m a married mother & I wouldn’t consult Dad for something like this. If I did he’d think I was weird & if I said “no” & they tried to go around me to him he’d just say “Talk to your mother”.

I'm not even sure if the dad was consulted. My impression (which of course, could be wrong) was that he found out about it later on, then decided to assert himself into the situation.

For the last few posters...ex was consulted because that is what we have always done when it comes to the kids.

UPDATE: After me pushing the ex to tell me exactly what his issue was and him not being able to come up with a good reason, I told him that I was going to take her to get it done. She has many things going on in her life right now that he wasn't fully aware of and this was really not a big deal and that he needed to trust me that I was doing what I felt was right for her by letting her make this decision.

The next day, she was with him and he told her that if she got it done, he would not be mad at her and would not let that ruin their relationship.

So I took her to get it done that week. It looks really nice on her, she is happy, and while the ex is still mad at me, I am used to that.
