I get a lot of comments on my children going around barefoot. So I thought I would let you get a glimpse into their barefoot world.
Kids are not expected to wear shoes. At all. My kids could go to church barefoot
that’s of course if we went They don’t have to wear shoes to restaurants. The schools request that we send them to school without shoes in the summer. No shoes when we go to town or library.
Easily put. My kids don’t wear shoes. Jason likes to wear shoes when he wears jeans but it’s just because of the look lol In the winter they obviously wear shoes but only to keep them warm. Even then they prefer to walk on socks.
I think there comes an age where kids want to wear shoes but mine aren’t anywhere near that!
Walking barefoot is way more healthy than wearing shoes especially in children. Google it. You’ll see 🙂
Oh I often get asked if I’m not scared that my kids will step into something that could harm them. Well…7 years into being a parent and except for the odd thorn, they haven’t stepped into anything that could damage them. Neither did I as a child.
Or now…this may come as a shock but I walk around barefoot often. At work I kick out my shoes and only put them on when we have clients. I don’t wear shoes at home.
Little foot nudists we are!
Children with the healthiest and most supple feet are those who habitually go barefoot. (Dr. Lynn Staheli, M.D. pediatric orthopedist, The N.Y. Times, Aug. 14, 1991)
