elegantlion Posted June 30, 2009 Share Posted June 30, 2009 This thought stemmed from the teen finance thread, when do boys start taking an interest in clothing? Never? Once they notice girls are not alien creatures? I like the idea of making my ds responsible for his clothing purchases. At 11 he likes only a certain style of clothing, nylon shorts and t-shirts. Fortunately we live in a warm climate with three seasons, chilly, nice, and blazing hot, so shorts can be worn almost year round. But as he grows the style he like is no longer available (yes he likes a certain brand) and thrift store selection in his size is usually worn out. He would wear the same shirts and shorts until they fell off and were super tight is he could. So if you give money to your teen boy to include clothing do you require they make certain purchases? Do you make them still follow appearance guidelines at home or before leaving the house? Or do you pray the constant reminding you've done over the years will kick in at this point? Do you send them shopping with dh? (My dh buys most of his own clothes) As with curriculum I'm planning ahead. Thanks for any advice, tips, BTDTs. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
