Your son comes downstairs grinning proudly because he has dressed himself for school on his own. He is four, and you want to encourage his independence. It is winter, but not ridiculously cold.
He is wearing a red short-sleeved Nationals baseball t-shirt with a pair of orange and blue striped shorts. It’s not pretty.
Do you let him go to school like that?
What if his forearms sport fading tattoos from the New Years’ Eve party?
