At this age, it’s important to teach our children to consider what’s appropriate for special occasions such as weddings, funerals, banquets, church, and graduation ceremonies. These types of events, especially 8th grade graduation, can serve as a “teachable moment” in that it is an appropriate time for your student to express him/herself in their fashion style and to meet the expectations of their school’s dress code. It is important to stress to your children that we will be in church and must dress appropriately for the occasion.
