  • Not if it's really hot, if their feet feel cool to the touch, then yes.

  • Yes, if they are going to wear shoes that day and not sandals. I didnt think wearing socks had anything to do with a cold.

  • No.Never thought about it,lol. My son would wear socks wether he's sick or not becuse he usually wears his tennis shoes to play his sports. I only put socks on my daughter in the summer when she wheres her tennis shoes which isnt often, she usually wears sandals or flip flops in the summer.
    But I don't think sock wearing and illnesses going hand in hand go together.

  • No, I suppose if they were cold I would, but no, socks have no real bearing on how quickly your WBCs knock out those nasty cold germs ;)

  • no, staying warm during a cold really doesn't do anything, a cold is a virus.
