At what age do u think children start to notice how other children are dressed. When does what you wear start to become "important"?

I remember it starting in 3rd grade, but it was a big deal by 5th grade.

I remember noticing things like that in around 6th grade. We were very very poor, and I remember that as when I started to really get made fun of.

Kindergarten. My oldest has told me about some of the things some of the girls have said to the other girls who don't wear nicer clothes.

Fourth or Fifth grade are when the kids started from what I can remember, now it seems by Pre-K all the \cool-rich' moms start before the kids even give a crap.

Quoting Dalek:" Kindergarten. My oldest has told me about some of the things some of the girls have said to the other girls who don't wear nicer clothes."



Goodness gracious. :? I remember how heartbroken I was when I started to get made fun of, I can't imagine what it would have been like in K.

Quoting Legendary Amanda:" My kindergartener has mentioned it on several occasions (hopefully only to me) That some kids wear clothes too big/ small or have holes in them."


That's so sad - not that your daughter takes notice - it is only normal to recognize things that are different to what we know...but that there are still kids out there who don't have clothes that fit properly.



I think I thought of this question as in when did kids start making fun of...but taking notice? My 4 year old compliments her friends at PreCC on their clothes and shoes. She's never said anything about anyone who's clothes weren't "nice" though.

I remember that, too. Middle school was worse than high school for me.

Middle school was awful for me. When I got emancipated in highschool things got better, because I could buy my own things & I had more control of my life..I wasn't stuck living in trash any more. Before that though, it was just awful. I remember Chris started dating me, and he was made fun of so much. He obviously saw something no one else did though, because I've gotten better as I've aged & obviously as a younger child it wasn't my choice to live like I did. :wink:

My dd will be 2 in a week and she already compliments people on their outfits, shoes and jewelry. She has never pointed out clothes that was less nice though. And my son is 6 and only pints out what other people are wearing if it featured starwars characters or Legos. Otherwise he doesnt care. He usually wants to wear his fire man rain boots and indiana jones coat to school. Lol
