When picking out school clothes, how much say do you have in what your kids get?
Is there anything that is off limits?
100% say? Unless my kids are paying on their own, only things I approve of will be purchased.
Mine wear uniforms so I have all the power as I have to reiterate what is acceptable to wear for their uniforms. LOL
" I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
I have 100% say....if moma don't like it they don't get it. lol
My kids aren't old enough to care yet. They usually aren't even there when I buy clothes.
Honestly I go through the racks and the second hand store and get what will fit them and looks good.
we don't buy school clothes. we buy the kids clothes when they need them.
as far as having a say, my oldest will be ten in about a month. i've had to take her shopping with me for clothes for awhile now because she's starting to "mature" & i can't really buy clothes for her without her trying them on, especially bottoms. she has majority of the say in what she gets but i do have veto power. thankfully she's not one to follow the fashions of the moment so i don't have to worry about her picking out short shorts or skirts, she's not a fan at all! ;o) if i'd let her she'd have a wardrobe filled with every owl, bacon or mustache shirt she could find, so that's really the only place i have to use my veto power with her. oh, & with cost to. it's not that she has expensive taste it's just that she doesn't look at pricetags only the design & i'm not one to pay $20 for a t-shirt.
my little guy will be 6 in two weeks & really doesn't care about clothes. if he's out with me when i'm shopping for him i'll ask him if he likes this or that, but he could really care less about what his clothes look like, for the moment, so i don't have to use my veto powers with him, yet.
I don't buy school clothes..I just buy as needed. My kids are still young..5 and 2..so it's not a big deal for them yet. ;)
I have final veto power.
