2. Will it matter to you in the future?
Your daughter leaves the house in full Goth makeup and your son pierces his eyebrow. Yelling won’t help, but biting your tongue might. In a year, five years, ten, will their style choices really matter? The answer is probably not. Insist on the hygienic piercing of eyebrows and the cleansing of faces and try to shift your focus onto the stuff that really matters, like who they are spending their time, what they’re reading and how they’re spending their time online.
