Re: Youth and their appearances

most kids (tweens/teens) succumb to peer pressure. boys and girls. it is not gender specific. kids these days feel that if they do not wear the right label of clothing, or the "it" shoes of the season, that they will not be accepted or fit in. i've taught my  mini me that "brains are sexy & geeks are hot." now, she also has a very charmed life and has asked me to tone down her clothing because not all of the kids she likes & hangs with at school can afford those clothes, brands, etc. she has feelings. she feels bad for them. she is trying "reverse fit in - meaning, dress down" so she is accepted.  i'm amazed by that and impressed. she by no means flaunts her wealth and has even asked that i not pick her up from school in my porsche. so i have to ask myself sometimes, is she embarrassed by that? having so much?

p.s. i wish school uniforms were mandated everywhere. that way, all kids are equal. period. look the same. are on the same playing field ....at school!

Re: Youth and their appearances

if not uniforms, at least a reinforced dress code!

Re: Youth and their appearances

I agree with that very much.  My mom was poor growing up and went to a private catholic school. But with uniforms she was just like tuna said, equal. Also my little brother went to a school a few years ago that had uniforms, so he didnt get to wear his skater clothes, but eventually he actually LIKED wearing button up shirts and slacks!! I was so proud :)

Anyway, yes, uniforms are such a good idea.

Also I have to say the pants hanging down past the boys buts and there undies showing drives me nuts!  I don't want to see some kids ass.   They even passed a city ordinance in my area that if you are caught its a $300. fine - talk about the protest on this - LOL.  I told my boys if I catch their pants down like that plan on mom or dad jerking them down - you want to show your a$$ then we will help.

Re: Youth and their appearances

I never can buy my daughter shorts because they are way too short. She is six. No thanks. I can't talk about how the kids dress today too much because I wore some of the most absurd clothes one could imagine. It was the early 90's, I was a skateborder. That means I was forced to wear size 40 jeans (purple probably) and a size XXXL shirt. It was probably blue with the word PIMP across it in yellow letters. In a really large font. My wheels were small and the pants big. In that time period it was all about looking cool. Man what dumbasses we were. At least now a days the clothes are less flamboyant so these kids will a little less to be embarrassed about. I really wish I had pictures so you could truly appreciate how dumb skate boarders used to dress. Oh, all of the baggy clothes originate from mimicking prison uniforms. They were baggy and one size fits most. So they got sagged. In skateboarding Chris Markovich seems to get all the blame for baggy clothes becoming popular.

 Oh well I'll take baggie "pimp" clothes over a$$ and undies showing.

My boxers would have shown if not for the absurdly large t-shirt. I sagged big time. I guess I got away with it from my parents because I got fairly good grades (B average). I mostly stayed out of trouble or at least didn't get caught most of the time. Plus, I must admit that the bulk of that occurred after I moved out of their house. So no one to blame but me.

Probably not. I was one of only a few people who dressed "different" in a school where the FFA was the biggest club. So girls weren't exactly knocking down my door. Haha. Jokes on them cause now skateboarding is cool. Plus I was a late bloomer and a nerd sort of. Plus, unless your name is Mary then you would have been the only girl down with our look and she dated my best friend. Oh boy, high school.

Re: Youth and their appearances

I also want to add that some people thnk it is the parents fault in some cases it is, Especially if you have a mom like those women from ornage county houswives lol. But in some cases its not. When i was young my Dad would tear me a new ass if I went out like I wanted too. Thing was I packed other clothes in my car or a friends car for the week and then dress on the way to school then dress back down when i got home.

I live in an inner city, and I'm seeing all the kids wearing their ballcaps with the price tags still hanging off of them.  All I can think of is Minnie Pearl.

"You must be", said the cat, "Or you wouldn't have come here"
