I completely agree with this article. I used to wear a dress of my son’s choice whenever there is parent teacher interaction session in Orchids International School where my kid is doing his third standard. The first time I heard him tell me about dressing, I was shell shoced and mildly pleased ( I for one have understood much about dressing up and have had to endure the taunts of many friends and colleagues). I suppose it is a kind of peer pressure that kids feel - someone's parent comes in smarty dressed, they want their parents to look smart to feel proud as well!

i think people should dress modestly and neatly no matter where they go, school, grocery store, office etc. dressing well is a habit that needs to be inculcated just like any other habits like not smoking.

i think you hit some good points, but i'm confused whether the girl was really materialistic, it seemed more of a matter of pride. and also if we don't teach children that materialistic things shouldn't be obsessed over at a young age, they will grow up thinking its ok. in your scenario, you imply its ok to let your child have what they want but if we always do that, what will happen? spoiled brats like me.
