KS2 Homework comments of the week

Should children choose their own clothes?

 

Congratulations to Davina Y3 and Keren Y5

 

I think children should choose their own clothes but parents should tell them what price to look at and what type of clothes they need. Parents should also tell their kids if they’re making a big mistake. I like to choose my clothes because I like clothes that are soft and don’t give me an itchy back. And I like wearing colorful clothes.

 

Davina Y3

 

I feel unsure. Parents are supposed to choose for you because they have responsibility for what you wear. They should know what looks good on you and they know your size. They should know what you like and don't like.

Contrary to that, children should pick what they like and are sometimes ashamed by their parent's choice. It also boosts self-esteem, gives them freedom to pick what they like and helps children develop their sense of style and express their individuality. Sometimes, children pick something very good. It fits them, they like it and expresses how good it can be when they choose clothes. In addition, it gives parents time off after a long and hard day.

Of course, the carers must have their opinion and the final say. Children picking clothes, however, has more reasons to why they should be allowed to choose their own clothes. Usually, children will shop with parents and ask for a range of clothes. I think that no matter how young, old, tall, short, poor or rich, all should be able to decide which clothes they want.
