How to Put Studs & Dangling Earrings Into a Girl's Ears

Save

Putting earrings into a young girl's ears can be a daunting task for any parent. Getting the earlobes pierced is half of the battle, but teaching her how to take out and put in earrings is just as difficult. Little girls typically accept the introduction to earrings, but have a hard time managing the new responsibility. With time and patience, however, both you and your child can make putting on new studs and dangling earrings an easy habit to get into.

Things You'll Need

  • A pair of studs with secure backings
  • A pair of dangling earrings

Putting on Studs

  • Help your child understand first and foremost that putting on earrings is a painless, easy process. If your ears are pierced, demonstrate the process on yourself.

  • Give your child a mirror so she can see where the piercing is on her lobe. It is important for her to be able to see her ears as you insert the earrings.

  • Remove the earrings from the girl's piercings, if she has any in them. Show her the hole, and explain to her that this is where the post will harmlessly enter.

  • Slide the post through the piercing once the child is calm, and prepare to put on the backing. Show the girl the backing and let her hold it before you put it on so she can be satisfied that there will be no pain.

  • Repeat the process on the other ear, and let the child attempt to put on the earrings if she is comfortable with the process.

Adding Dangling Earrings

  • Explain to your child that once again, putting on earrings is a painless, easy process. As with studs, there will be no difficulty. If your ears are pierced, demonstrate the process on yourself.

  • Hand your child a mirror to view where the piercing is on her lobe, just as you did before. Remember that it is important for her to be able to see her ears as you insert the earrings.

  • Remove the earrings from the girl's piercings, if she has any in them. Show her the hole, and explain to her that this is where the post will harmlessly enter.

  • Slide the dangling earrings through the piercings one by one once she has become comfortable.

  • Make sure that the earrings are completely through each hole if they do not have backings. Most dangling earrings have no backings, and are secured by a curved hook.

  • Show the girl the backing, if the earring has one, and let her hold it before you put it on so she can be satisfied that there will be no pain.

Tips & Warnings

  • Allowing your child to touch the earrings and feel the piercing itself before beginning the process will make her more comfortable, and increase your chances of success. Give your child the opportunity to pick her own earrings before you begin teaching.
  • Find out if the girl is allergic to any type of earring material (such as nickel or silver) before beginning the process.
