    I think it sets a bad example to the kids. "Work hard at school, kids, or... you'll end up just like mummy and spend most of your mornings all wrapped up in your lovely cozy bed ".

    Would you wear nightwear to go to the shops? No. To the cinema? No. (well probably not, might do if it's a late night showing)

    So why wear pjs to school? Especially to your kid's primary school...

    Couldn't agree more. It's pretty disgraceful to rock up to a parent's meeting with pj's :lolwut:

    As long as they have enough money to provide for their family and themselves and don't unfairly claim benefits, why should they have to work? They're living the dream surely

    As for parents in their pyjamas, I could understand if they were actually dressed inappropriately but as long as they're not hurting anyone why should the headteacher have a say in what they wear? I'm sure my education would not have been affected had my mum brought me to school in her pjs lol

    honestly if the school's like 30 seconds away I'm going in my pyjamas X'D
    we used to live in one of those apartments directly above a store and we'd go in every morning in our pyjamas and get breakfast

    now we moved out we have to do shopping weekly ;_;

    I dont think wearing PJ's in the morning when dropping off kids is too bad, as long as its appropriate. But going to parents evening in PJ's?! Surely by then, you'd be wearing actual clothes?

    I remember my dad comming watching a school play I was in and he fell asleep snoring. I get that I wasn't an entertaining enough actor but I got a harsh telling off for snoozing in class, hardly a good role model. At least he was dressed though.

    I'd go to shops in my PJs, in fact I know plenty who already do... especially in the mornings.

    Do PJ-wearing adults offend you that much?

    This is a non-issue.

    It'd be a different story if the adults were showing up in their underwear.

    If an adult didn't "care" they wouldn't be bringing their children to school in the first place. Honestly, I think you're being a wee bit ridiculous.

    No-one would. Despite the fact there's no uniform, someone would be sent home for coming in in PJs. It's just silly.
