Do you put your kids' names on their clothes?

When mine were in K-2, we'd label clothing like jackets, hats, gloves, etc., things they would have to take off while they were there and might leave lying around. We stopped doing it when they got older, only labeling their backpacks in case those got stolen, and now that they're teens, the backpacks remain the only things that they have labeled.

Do you label your kids' clothes? At what age do you feel like it's not necessary to do so any longer?

Not really, rarely did it much in daycare either. Only thing I label is the backpack and lunchbox.

I never did I felt it was not safe, the school and day care always had cubbies with their names on them :)

The only things I've ever labeled were my sons backpack and lunch box. When he was in preschool and kindergarden they asked that the parents send an extra set of clothes in a ziplock bag and to label the bag.
