Do you ever have trouble with your kids suddenly deciding they don’t like a certain piece of clothing?

I took my son shopping for 2nd grade and he picked out a great pair of red skinny jeans. We both loved them and he wore them for the first month of school.

But yesterday he came home from school and reported that he will not be wearing them anymore because the girls at recess said they look like girls pants.

Have your kids ever had other children make fun of their clothes? How would you handle a situation like this?

Thanks!

Ellen

I, too, have a 2nd and 3rd grader this year (both boys who wear uniforms so no fun there :). I also have bookends to the boys – two girls – one a HS senior – the other a kindergartner… so fashion runs the gamut! Will be an interesting year…..

We actually do go to Howards. Howards has always been great about finding shoes that will work. My daughter has basically lived in Pedi-peds (and crocs) since she needed shoes. We do the “one pair” thing too. Till they wear out and then back to Howards for a new pair! Howards tried to find a sneaker that would fit her, but was not able to. I think that since she is wearing a good, supportive shoe with a flexible sole, that is good enough. Especially since she is not running a mile in 1st grade PE class! Her teacher, however, is still concerned. Maybe I need to get a note from Mr. Howard! He’s so great, I bet he would write one! =)
I will check out the Tsukioshi shoes. I am not familiar with those. Thanks again!

Right now the only brand we have any luck with is Pediped. They have great sneakers and come with a little insert that you can take out and give your kids more time in each size of shoe.

It brings back memories of my own back-to-school wardrobe (even the pegged jeans and docksider shoes, ugh).

My question is what do YOU wear to school? :)

Now that I have a boy and girl of my own (two strawberry blondes), I love these even more – such inspiration!
And they look so happy and well-loved which is always the best accessory to any outfit!

Looking forward to the other installments…

But I`m really surprised that they are allowed to wear such clothes at school. My kids have a special uniform at their school and nothing except white and black can be worn. What about your school?

I am curious how you choose clothes–how do you go about it? Do you go through the wardrobes first and decide what is needed? Do you let you kids entirely choose? Do you simply buy pieces for them? How do you balance your style and theirs?

We made one quick trip to the Mall of America for the girls, but then just bought a bunch of T-shirts at Target. My oldest three are into the retro T-shirts (from MY youth), which I think is a hoot: Jurassic Park, Millennium Falcon, Star Trek, etc.

I am amaze that my 8 year old nephew wanted and proudly wears bright orange and other skinny jeans! Too funny! As a teacher my “favorite” look is when students put their own identity into their style…perhaps the gleek in me admires the flare, creativity and confidence these students exude. Of course the Abercrombie zombie continues to reign, and I get it! Kids (mostly) want to fit in at the pre-teen/teen ages. My two older nephews are starting to outgrow this and now own their own looks. I’m compelled to say it is harder nowadays, but my son who’s 27 went through this in fifth/sixth grade withthe horrid Jenko jeans and Lugz. I recall my husband and I in the shop with him sort of dumbfounded…seems funny looking back at how we hemmed and hawed. I also remember having to have Levi’s in fifth grade in the late 70′s and Jordache and Gloria Vanderbilt jeans in high school. So, it will forever be…

We had such a frustrating time trying to find shoes for him until we started going to a local shoe store that gives each customer an evaluation (measures the foot, looks at the arch/instep, watches how you walk to look for pronation issues, etc.) and then helps you find shoes to fit your foot. My son has had excellent luck with New Balance athletic shoes, but only specific styles. They have to have a break in the middle of the sole that is flexible and allows for arch support. He can’t wear the stiff, flat-bottomed, slip-on styles. I have feet much like his, and I can’t either. Also, they were able to show us at the shoe store how to lace his shoes to provide even more support. I highly recommend finding a shoe store that offers personalized services. Good luck!

All four of my girls have had many shoes from Howard’s over the years. One good pair is enough!

They love the camera! I love his thumbs up. Also, great idea to grab a few accessories like her cute little scarf to dress it up a bit without being too complicated. And you can never go wrong with polka dots!

He doesn’t exactly like to pose for pictures :) Can wait to see how June did!

I was looking forward to this post because I have a second grader and I am in need of some ideas. Love layering t-shirts and shirts on Oscar. Well done.
