Honest to gosh -- true story here -- my 19 year old son who I did NOT drop on his head as a child wants to mutilate his ears/body with gauges. I try to look at the big picture and see that out of some of the choices he could make this is probably not as life altering as lets say driving while impaired or experimenting with illicit drugs. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around the "WHY" --

  • WHY would you want to look like that?
  • WHY would you want to have people turn and stare?
  • WHY my son!?
