Dress properly please
Closed

Good morning all. I just saw an article on Facebook about a primary school in Yorkshire which has announced a rule that parents should not do the school run wearing a dressing gown (I assume that's a bathrobe in the UK?) because other parents are disgusted by it. I've never dropped my kids off at school wearing a dressing gown. Then again I don't have a car so that would be awkward on a bicycle. Even so, if I had a car I would still get dressed to take them to school even if I didn't leave the car at all. It's just something you do, dress properly when you leave your house. I sometimes go get my wheelie bin in my PJ's which is about 30 m from my house but that's as far as I go. I would NEVER go anywhere without putting some proper clothes on. I don't even go out in joggings, always jeans and shoes and a coat or hoodie. I think if parents can get kids ready for school in the morning they surely can put on some jeans or something themselves. At least wear a jogging suit. I think it's utterly lazy to drop your kids off in a bathrobe. I also wonder if they comb their hair and wash their faces before doing so. Sorry but I don't think that's acceptable and I think the school is right to ask parents to dress properly. Not only because it would be a decent thing to do but also for their own children. I'd be so embarrassed if my mum dropped me off in her bathrobe. There's no excuse. Not 'maybe s(he) worked late, maybe had a bad night, maybe maybe.. nothing! No excuse. What is your opinion on this?

I’m not disgusted by it at all. I think the comments saying it’s disgusting are the ones that are disgusting
I knew a lady who lost her kid and she wore her pjs to school to drop her other kids off. She got out of bed and got them to school in what must have been a horrendous time, people are so quick to judge

I couldn't care less what people wear... it's none of my business, and probably none of yours either.

I think you're being really judgemental to be honest. It may seem easy to you, or the majority of people to get dressed, brush your hair, wash your face, brush your teeth, put a bit of make up on etc. But for some it's difficult just getting out of bed in the morning if they have illnesses, mental health problems or physical conditions.
Frankly I don't think people should give a shit about what other people wear, if they are disgusted or offended by someone wearing a dressing gown to do a quick drop off at the school gates, then it say's more about them than it does about the person wearing the dressing gown.
I think it's vile that people are instantly calling them lazy or slobs, seriously, get a grip and get down off your high horses! If you are angered by someone wearing a dressing gown and can't focus on your own life, then you are a very sad individual indeed.

I read that article too & luckily I've not seen anyone do it it here. There is an annual wear your pyjamas to school day to raise money for charity but only for the pupils & teachers!

I totally agree with you. You dress to go out showing respect for others and also for yourself. That is part of the problem, people have so little respect.

not really a big problem unless you can see parts of their body and show it off to everyone else. agree it is a bit slobby looking not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
