When your son wears shorts do you think they should come above or below the knee?

My son just put on shorts and they were above his knee. I made him change because to me they looked funny and I think the shorts should come to below the knee or right at.
What do you think?

  • I agree with you. Below the knee is best. If they get above the knee its time for new shorts. My husband seems to think they are fine but he also thinks that pants that sit above the shoe are fine. lol That's why his not allowed to dress my son often.

  • yeah i also have a son, hes 2. an i think shorts should come at the knee or a lil below. but a lil bit above isnt bad either. as long as it isnt too much above the knee, its ok. an wont look wierd.

  • Yeah, I think it looks weird too if its above the knee on boys,lol. But if its just slightly above ,mid-knee or just below the knee I think thats fine. As long as he's not shoing any chicken thigh...were good! LOL

  • My son is only 19 months so as long as they don't look like booty shirts they are fine on him. When he's older it will be his choice what to wear although personally if I were a guy I would want my shorts at least at the knee if not below.

  • My oldest 2, ages 8 and 13, should have shorts that hand below the knee. My 5 yr old can get away with any length.
