A mum has hit back at critics who questioned her parenting for letting her nine-year-old daughter get her nose pierced.

Meagan Black, from Illinois, USA, made her feelings perfectly clear in a video shared on TikTok.

Check it out here:


Meagan - who describes herself as a 'momma of four and trucker's wife' - shared a video of herself under the quote: "You're a bad mom for letting your nine-year-old have a nose piercing."

In response to this judgement she then flicks up her middle finger - or 'flips the bird', as they say in the USA.

Captioning the video, she wrote: "But why is it just 'so cute' when a 2 year old is wearing a crop top but y'all flip over a nose ring?"

The video has been viewed a million times, and as you can probably imagine, it sparked some lively debate/disagreement in the comments.

One TikToker user wrote: "i got a nose piercing myself but 9 is a bit too early bc the nose hasnt fully grown yet."

Another said: "Nine really is a bit young … I think the youngest I'd let my child do this would be 13/14.

"you‘re not a bad mom and if I was your child and I’ve been begging for it I'd be very happy … but I'd be too afraid that they‘d regret it later or that their nose isn't completely grown yet."

And a third wrote: "My mom pierced mine when I was in 7th grade, got matching tattoos at 14. Now that I have kids I wish she would've been my mother instead of my friend."

However, others agreed Meagan was right to take no notice of critics.

One person commented: "i think it’s awesome you’re letting your kids express themselves."

Another said: "It's just a piercing like it's not letting them get a full sleeve of tats it's her kid not there’s if she has let her get that done that's her choice

While a third added: "they can always take it out if they don't want it anymore."

So, what do you reckon?
