Re: What do you think of this?
My kids have a dress code similar to that. I am all for it, kids need to compete academically not socially in school. dress codes bring everybody to a level playing field. Rich kids, poor kids, nerds, jocks, all look the same. So now the value of a friendship is a little more about the person rather than how cool the clothes mommy and daddy buy are. I was an absolute wreck in school, drugs, bad grades, drugs, skipping classes, drugs, rebellious, no clue whatsoever...I think a lot of it had to do with the permissiveness of the school and my parents. I'd like my kids to have a better start out than I did. However my parents were first class inattentive, dumb asses, probably what my kids will say in 25 years, but I'm trying. A dress code is the start, parents have to take the next step, and actually be willing to parent.
