Do Your Children Like Wearing Glasses?

If your children wear glasses, do they like or hate them? My oldest has reading glasses and wears them alot (when he's doing his homework, on the computer, at school) and my youngest wishes he had them, so I bought him fake ones.

  • My boys both wear them Oldest from about 7 youngest about 5. My oldest never fussed about them. My youngest hated them. As soon as he turned 18 he bought contacts and hasn't had a pair on since. He had Lasik surgery done last year and couldn't be happier.

  • My 6 year old does and has for about 3 years. She loves them and does great with them. It is wonderful that kids do not make fun of others in this aspect like they used to.

  • My 5th grade son has them and really doesn't like them at all. My 4th grade daughter loves her and prefers the way she looks with them rather than without. She really only needs to wear them to see the board, but she wears them all the time. My 13 yo son has autism and thought since his siblings have glasses, he wanted some too so I bought him some inexpensive frames.

  • Both of my boys wear them. They love them. I don't ever have to tell them to put their glasses on. First thing they do in the morning after getting out of bed. They have never been teased. I don't think the teasing is bad as it was when I was little, and I'm in my late thirties.

  • My 8yo daughter wears them and loves her glasses. She looks so cute in them. But she's been wearing them basically her whole life so she doesn't know any different. She got them at 18 months. I got mine in 4th grade and loved them because I could finally see the board without squinting. I didn't care if the other kids made fun of me (they weren't worth my time) because I could finally see again.

  • There was never any problem getting her to wear them because she can see better now than she could before.
