My dd is 5 and has ADHD along with sensitivity issues. It is nearly impossible to find shoes that she'll wear and keep on her feet. During the winter we lucked out and she was in love with some Disney princess boots that I got at Walmart. Well winter has come and gone and the boots were so ratty it was time for them to go. Off to the store we go to buy her new shoes and she fell in love with these crocs awesome! No shoelaces, easy on and off, and they're comfortable to her and don't bother her sensitivity issues. She wears them to school and after 3 days I receive a note saying school policy doesn't allow crocs because the children use fine motor skills and could get hurt. Now mind you there are kids who wear flip flops and little girls who wear flats which are easier to get hurt in then crocs. After all it's not like they're running around the classroom. So I comply and try to find my dd a pair of tennis shoes that work. We got a pair they were fine for a day and then she had issues. So I decided to let her wear the crocs. A week goes by of me sending her to school in these crocs. Nothing was said until yesterday when I dropped her off and her teacher starts with school policy blah blah. So I cut her off (immature I know but this is just the tip of iceberg of the problems we have had throughout the year) and said to her teacher look my daughter has ADHD and sensitivity issues both that you are aware of. It's nearly impossible finding clothes and shoes that work for her and don't cause problems. There are children wearing flip flops and flats that cause more injuries then crocs. Her crocs have a strap on the back and honestly there is a month left of school and if this is the only big issue in your day I would count your blessings because I hate to break it to you but she is wearing the crocs. Her teacher just stood there and stared at me with nothing to say. Am sorry but am so sick of these fresh out of college teachers who have children that don't met their textbook material children and creating issues out of nothing. Kids are going to fall and get hurt no matter what shoes they wear. When did it feel so necessary to put all these stupid school policies on things that really aren't that necessary?
