How Much Will You Spend On School Clothes This Year – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's dilemma:
This is probably going to be a lot less "heavy" dilemma than you're used to but it is something that has been on my mind a lot lately and I thought maybe your listeners could help with their input.
I have two teenage kids and while I am getting a little excited that summer vacation is coming to an end, the topic of "school clothes" has been coming up a lot lately. I have a 16 year old girl and a 13 year old boy. Every year it seems like the bill for these shopping trips get higher and higher. I don't think I'm different in that as a parent I don't want them to not be dressed well and look good in school, but I'm not exactly as well off as many other parents in their school.
My question is, in general how much do parents intend to spend on school clothes this year? Do you set a monetary limit or is it more just going out and trying to get what they need and hoping you can pay the rent in September?
