Unfortunetely, there will always be children that tease or make fun of other children. Even in a school with uniforms, you will still have the child that has the old, faded uniform and has to wear the same clothes over and over again, because the parents can not afford uniforms and regular clothes. There will also always be the children with cute new uniform, the Abercrombie Polo shirt, a cute haircut and highlights and those that don't. I think the focus need to be on our children having a high self esteem and parents teaching children how much it hurts to tease other children.

Oooo, I would love if we had uniforms. Think of all the money I would be able to save. I think young kids that "hate" uniforms are most likely voicing their "parents opinions".

Our entire school district has uniforms. At first I didn't like it, but I have to admit it was pretty easy to get our daughter dressed in the morning. Also, I think the children look pretty well put-together. However, we are homeschooling this year and I love that I can shop for her again. :-)

odachimaster has a very good point... Then ask yourself if you were one of the parents like that, how would you deal with this??

I love the fact of uniforms, and currently trying to find a uniformed school for my daughter. I hate having to buy her clothes all the time, and her getting them messy. I think that some of the uniforms.

i think uniforms are a great idea, this way there clothes will last longer, and it will be soooooo much easier to dress in the morning.

This is my son's second year in uniforms and I have to say we both really like them. It takes the pressure off him to decide what to wear and if I look around I can get them for an inexpensive price. I have found on many occasion that purchasing a weeks worth of uniform items when it is time to go back to school compared to regular clothes that it is cheaper.

I know a lot of people who are ringing the expression bell on this one. I do agree that your clothes say a lot about you. I do not agree, however, that my son at six should be worrying about what his clothes are "saying" about him. Nor should children including mine who are still attending elementary school be so fixated on their appearance. Some great advice my father gave me when I was in school "It's not a beauty contest."

It makes me wonder who it is more important to, to wear high end duds the children? Or their parents?

after reading the posts. I find alot of great points. It also brings up additional questions: Kids grow so typically as parents we buy new clothes (uniforms),
Children get dirty real dirty at least mine did in some towns they have mud parks to allow the children to create, have fun it is a safer way to get dirty. Children fall whether in uniforms or jeans will patches say something about the child? I just think if parents can get over themselves all children will mix and enjoy and have no idea there is any differences because there is not any. Children are Children

odachimaster,
Uniforms don't cost all that much more than regular clothes. As my child outgrows the uniforms, I can donat them to my school who offers them for minimum costs (i.e., $3 a shirt). Thus, at her school if you can afford regular clothes, you can afford uniforms.

I have no idea how may that have posted have ever lived in a car or ever knew when your next shower let alone food would come along. if uniforms are a must check the school and see how many children are on reduced lunch program. That will give everyone an idea how many will need assitance in purchasing the uniforms. I would rather see a child that is less fortunate wear different rags each day then to have that same child buy a hand-me-down from the school and another child say heh I use to wear that shirt I put that tiny mark there. Children can accept another child just the way they are. Parents on the other hand are questionable.
