I do not like skinny jeans. Girls can pull them off, but I don't care for them on boys. Guess who loves them?
He's been dying for a pair and I avoided them like the plague while school clothes shopping. This Friday is "twins" day and he and his new friend have decided on these jeans. A clever way for Carter to acquire such a fashion? Possibly, but I don't think this act was premeditated. Most kids seem to have a pair and Carter wants to fit in.
So, for the first time, we're faced with the age-old-issue of giving in to "fads" or sticking with our taste.
I want to raise independent thinkers, so I welcome Carter's input and hope we can always find middle ground in this department. There are some things we won't be flexible on......but this one seems innocent enough.
I'm torn with wondering 2 things.
***Are we turning into lame parents since we don't care for this style?
***When is it appropriate for parents to say "no" simply because of a conflict of taste?
