As some of the kids have gotten married, moved out, and started their own families, they have ditched some of their parents’ strict rules. You’ve probably seen Carlin Bates and some of her sisters wearing pants. Now, Carlin has done something else.

Carlin Bates defies her parents’ strict rules.

In her latest YouTube video, which was released over the weekend, Carlin took fans along for her daughter Layla’s birthday celebration. Her third birthday is Tuesday, Jan. 31, but Carlin and Evan went all out to spoil their little girl a couple of days before the big day. One of Layla’s wishes was to get her ears pierced, and her parents made that happen.

Below, you can see a snap of Layla getting her ears pierced, as well as a shot of her showing off her pretty earrings. Of course, the little girl cried for a minute, but she seemed to be happy with them after the pain subsided.

What do Gil & Kelly think about this?

So far, Gil and Kelly haven’t publicly said anything about Layla’s piercings. And they don’t typically comment on potentially controversial topics.

On her blog several years ago, Kelly Bates explained why she and Gil don’t allow their kids to pierce their ears while living at home. The mother of 19 wrote:

“We prefer them to not get pierced ears while living with us, because once pierced they cannot be reversed. We have several reasons, but one of the reasons is because as a young girl, I had pierced ears and one ear ripped as a earring caught on a piece of clothing. If our children choose to get pierced ears when they move out, obviously they are old enough to make that decision and care for them without worrying over infections or injuries.”

On Reddit, fans are talking about Carlin’s decision. Many appreciate that she waited until Layla was old enough to say she wanted to have her ears pierced. Of course, some are pointing out how this decision is the opposite of what Carlin was able to do growing up.

So, what do you think of Carlin Bates allowing Layla to pierce her ears for her third birthday? Do you agree with this decision, or do you think she should’ve waited until Layla was older?
