Recently, there has been a spotlight on mothers dropping their children off to school in pyjamas (and occasionally slippers). One headmaster took action against this shameful behaviour. Do we agree that these mothers should be ‘put on blast’?
Disclaimer – I LOVE ALL MOTHERS.
Now I’ve got the disclaimer out of the way, let’s get down to business. If you haven’t heard about this story yet, a headteacher named Kate Chisholm of Skerne Park Academy, Darlington, sent this letter out to the parents.
I’ve got some selfish and unselfish reasons why I’m backing Kate’s suggestions.
So first of all, you wake your seed up from slumber, sort out breakfast, iron a shirt, comb hair, tie a windsor knot, then you take them to school in pyjamas? there’s no doubt that mornings are a grind but let us try to not throw out mixed messages. Unless you leave your residence looking like Rihanna, then your going to look real sloppy. The young mind is sensitive to external stimuli so if you don’t want them to be hooked to the gambling spot, or not making a living by swinging on a pole, then get your act together.
Plus, think about this. The women of the world have provided inspiration to many bleak mornings for men worldwide. Have a heart.
At 8.45am, I’m not expecting this look, although my appreciation level would be high.
Maybe an eye catching coat could be the solution to those early morning struggles. Lets look at the best coats sported at Kiev Fashion Week.
I’m making mountains out of molehills in this post, but it’s all for the sake of entertainment. Nonetheless, I guess a pertinent point is we should make an effort to look presentable because the younger versions of ourselves would be shaking their heads in disappointment. Just because we may have responsibilities, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look after ourselves. Let’s all try as a community to not look like something the cat just dragged in.
