To make sure your hair is brushed and your socks are at least the same color before you walk out the door? I think my daughter thinks I'm torturing her right now.  I'm so tired of having this fight every.single.school.day. Yes, your hair needs to be brushed.  Can I run my fingers through it? No? Back to the bathroom to try again.  Did you brush your teeth? Back to the bathroom.  Remember deodorant? Back to the bathroom.  Matching socks? Back to the bedroom to find new ones.  GAH!

Why do her socks have to match? Everything else I understand but socks seem like nit picking especially when mismatched socks are in

I only care if teeth are brushed and hbair is somewhat knot-free. Socks aren't worth a battle to me.

Her socks don't have to match, but they have to at least be the same color.  She's not a huge fan of jeans or khaki's, and she wears a lot of leggings that only go to just above her ankle.  If she's wearing pants that don't show socks, or boots..I could really care less as long as she's got socks on lol

Hmm well I still think its kinda nitpicking ... I mean you could always look at the positive side at least she doesn't give a shit about what others think ... Which is a pretty damn good quality in my book :D ps I'm 35 and my socks pretty much never match lol

My 14-year-old DD doesn't wear matching socks, ever. This morning she left the house with an orange sock and a lime green sock on. That's just "the thing" now.

As far as the hair....I used to have that problem when DD was about 9 or 10. One day I got so frustrated and I told her she looked like a little homeless girl. She started caring a little more about what her hair looked like after that.

A new trend is to wear NON matching socks.  They even sell non matching pairs of socks at Target.
