Yeah ok.  My kids did this in middle and high school by their own choice.  I did similarly stupid things at that age in the name of fashion even though it was cold outside.

Its hardly neglect, I didnt die, my kids didn't die, these kids you see doing it wont die either.

My teenage son lives in shorts we had 4 inches of snow fall last night with another 8 inches to come throughout the day and he wore shorts to school. He has jeans but would rather be comfortable. If someone were to confront me about his clothing choice they’d have me laughing straight in their face with a bye bitch at the end.

Eh. Unless the child is visibly shivering and telling me he/she doesn’t have pants, I’m not going to worry about it and in that case, I would simply buy them a couple of pairs.

Oh and my son has worn shorts in the snow.

How old. After a certain age, kids know what they want and know the consequences.

My ds13 ASD and only wears shorts.

After a certain age it's a choice.

I don't worry about older kids but I do think it's poor parenting to send little kids to school like that. But I would never complain to the parents or anyone...I'm honestly more focused on my own kids to notice the others.

Some parents sent their kids out in flip flops and short when we had snow and freezing cold. When they got on the bus they complained about being cold and wanted the heater on. I don't understand that at all. I understand child like to wear certain clothing and will put up a fuss, but at some point you put your foot down and say no.

My youngest son went to preschool once wearing shorts, everyone thought he was nuts but he worn them because his class room gets really hot sometimes.
