Socks and Uniforms
My oldest daughter wore a uniform her first year in school. Then we moved and pretty much anything goes. Tank top type shirts must have straps 3 fingers wide and shorts/skirts must come down to your fingertips.
All and all, I'd say uniforms would be better. No agonzing over what to wear or getting just the "right" outfit.
Good question and really cute socks!
Lovely socks by the way. May I have one for my daughter :)
in B&H there was never a rule in schools to wear uniforms, you wouldn't believe how kids go to school - and i agree it does create peer pressure to look modern - up to date..
nice topic again.
Honestly I don't know if I would have done well in a uniform environment. I have a fiercely independent nature at times (for better or worse), and uniforms rankle me. To this day I cannot work where I would have to wear one. We were not a rich family, in fact, I usually got hand-me-downs that were uncool 5 years before when my brother wore them.
I guess it would have been good for me to be at a school that made you wear a uniform, that way I might not be a headcase about them now!
tata: the jaguar point is so true. gap will always be around, eh? oh well...I guess good parenting will help kids cope with gaps like that at school :)
Prmary school uniforms are pretty relaxed - tshirst or polo shirts and shorts or trackie pants. High school is usually a bit more formal, though only the really posh private schools go in for ties.
Here's my sons primary school uniform:
Because of the sun intensity, most primary schools require the kids to wear a hat when playing outside: "No hat, no play".

My little girl love pink socks! Though she wears uniform in pre-school, socks are the only thing that they can wear without restrictions.
I went to a convent school from pre-school to HS and wore uniform half of my life. When i went to the university, i felt free but exposed. I don't know why. But i think uniforms are great! I guess, it saved from me getting late. If I'm to gauge my clothing habits now, I guess i'll be forever late for school.
