Would you send your child to school...?

if their jeans are faded and a slight tear in the knee area he is so rough with jeans I want to buy him more but the cold weather is almost gone here in TX. he just wears shorts to school but since it has been cold lately he damaged all his jeans.
But would you send your child with these jeans...I don't like it but I have no choice.

  • If you went to his school and actually watched some of his classmates, I'm sure you'd see kids with clothes in worse condition. All kids are hard on clothes. Maybe you could put a patch on the hole. Fabric stores have some really cool iron on patches. How old is he?

  • Personally, no. I do not allow my children to wear clothes with holes in them or ones that are really faded. I am really anal about my kid's clothes though.

  • My kids do not wear even the ones that you can buy that way. They do not like them and neither do I.

  • I won't say never -- if the situation came up suddenly I might not get it resolved for a couple of days. But no, I wouldn't intentionally send my kid to school in ripped jeans. I'd either do laundry more often for a while (so the few unripped jeans can be worn over and over) or go hit those January clearance sales (and buy big, so they'll still fit next fall).
