One Foot in the School Door: Getting the Proper Fit for Your Scholar

Going back to school means there’s going to be pressure to fit in, this is especially true if your child is at the age when peer pressure is at its peak.  No child wants to be singled out for being too different., and girls especially find it important to wear the hippest clothes and shoes to earn the approval of their clique.  The cute dresses grandma sent in the spring may be deemed babyish and rejected in favor of the latest graphic tees and denim vests.  Perfectly good Mary Janes will be tossed to the back of the closet in favor of new sneaks.  Whether our child gives in to the need to be one of the bunch or wants to proclaim their individuality, if the shoe fits – they still shouldn’t wear it if it’s not best for their feet.
