« My son has a moustache... | Main | When do they move out, again? »

January 22, 2009


Daisy, I couldn't agree with you more! And I've said no to any pants/shorts/sweats with anything written on the butt. So far I'm winning that one....we'll see how it goes.

hear hear!!!!!

I don't know how many times I've seen those shirts and asked myself, "what were the parents thinking?" Yes, indeed it is the parents fault. Kids don't have the money for wardrobe choices, parents do.

Right up until my daughter went to college, we still had to meet in some kind of middle ground on certain clothing options. It says alot about how you raise your kids, when you allow that kind of degradation on their shirts. (Hugs)Indigo

And a hearty AMEN from the peanut gallery!

Thanks for the encouragement! You'll talk to the parents of my students now, right? :)

I heartily agree. Why on earth would we encourage, even tacitly, the very attitudes and behaviours that drive us mad?

However, while it may be true that kids don't have money to buy their own clothes, it is not so often true of teens, who are quite likely to have a part-time job. In that case, a parent often sees a child wearing something they had no hand in choosing at all. I've used that "job application" scenario to explain why certain slogans are just not appropriate.

My daughters (more socially aware) get it better than my son (an honour student who only sees the humour and not the disrespect). Thankfully, he's outgrown this particular fashion. No more slogans on his chest!

Thank goodness.
