And you should have gone through with it. Assuming she's really young, she would have gotten to school and then what, ran back embarrassed at some point. And possibly make you seem like a bad parent to some people, but screw them. Either way, you just had to wait for your victory when it came to putting the clothes on. Don't wuss out or she'll know you wont follow through next time.

Well I'm assuming the daughter is quite young, because even a 10-12 year old knows the undefined rules of society from peers and the community. I could see a 5-6 year old doing something like that and in that case I'm pretty sure you aren't going to give them a $100 to buy their own clothes.

60 - You're absolutely right! I mean it's not like bad things happen to little girls/small children when left on their own and being naked will definitely scare off all the creeps/weirdos! Good thinking there buddy! If only more people had the same completely non-flawed logic like yourself!

Considering OP lives in the UK, her daughter was wearing school uniform. School uniform has always been hideous but mums tend to buy the uncomfortable versions.

44, OP never said her daughter didn't help pick them out. I've picked out clothes before and then when I got ready to wear them I didn't like them as much. The daughter could just be a spoiled brat and if you think a mom picking out clothes for her daughter (THAT THE MOTHER IS PAYING FOR) is wrong, then you must be too.

Uhh...72, if the mother is paying for it, she does have the right...it's her money. Even if it would be nicer for children to pick them themselves, it is still the parent's right, if they're the one buying.

97 - I'm sorry but assuming that OP is using the word "tantrum" right, then just no. If you're over sixteen, there is absolutely no reason for you to be throwing fucking fits like a five year old. You can express your feelings in a much more reasonable way than that if we're just talking about CLOTHES. Also, really? Walking down the street nude? Maybe it's only me, but that seems sort of immature on its own. I get that OP "gave her the option", but still. In any other case though, yes, I can understand your point.

OP was trying to be nice perhaps?! She doesn't deserve it at all! My mum used to buy me clothes, if I didn't like them I'd politely tell her so, not throw a fit. She knows not to buy my clothes anymore because I'm not a kid, but it was gesture of love and care. Also it says school clothes, it's the mothers responsibility to make sure her child is dressed appropriately for school. Sheesh.

Ok so this is the UK not USA we have uniforms in all our schools and compulsory education stops at 16 So we know the OP's daughter is 16 or younger, so as already said if between ages 4-6 then cute (Year 1-2 aka 1st grade) if between 7-11 then a little bit odd (years 3-6 sorry don't know the American equivalent) if any older then she'd be in UK high school which would just be wrong

44 - the OP clearly states that she bought her a daughter a new school uniform. That does not translate to "an entire wardrobe". The daughter doesn't have a choice of what she wears to school either way seeing as it can be deduced that the school has set a uniform.

I don't think it was "immature" of her. If my mom bought me a bunch of clothes that I felt uncomfortable wearing, I wouldn't know how to react. If she gave me the option and I react by nicely explaining that I don't want to wear it, my mom would probably say "too bad" and force me to wear it. Since my mom doesn't usually take me seriously I would have to prove my point, even if that means walking outside without clothes

People seem to be forgetting this was sent from the United Kingdom, so it will have been a school uniform. The clothes will have looked virtually exactly, if not exactly, like her old clothes. So really, there is no excuse for her being a dipshit about it.

For pete's sake, #44! I'm 25 and I live on my own, and my mom STILL picks out my clothes for me since I can't afford them myself! We've gotten into rough arguments as a result when she won't let me choose my own style, which she hates, but it's what I feel comfortable in. Most of the time, though, I don't complain since I can't afford $200+ in clothes.

The option wasn't given, it was clearly sarcasm. Unless the child is mentally handicapped then even the youngest school-aged child knows you aren't supposed to run around naked.

Wow, a little nudist! Was she unhappy about the style of clothes you got her or was she just preferring her old clothes? Either way, fyl, but you kind of had it coming when you have her a choice.

Reply

When I was growing up, every summer my dad would buy us a "complete new set of clothes for school" and it wasn't school uniforms. Just because it was for school doesn't mean it definitely would be school uniforms.

Reply

Now matter how ridiculous the school uniform was, if it's a school uniform she has no choice but to wear it, so there was really no reason for her to throw a tantrum.

I'm assuming that she didn't choose the clothes for her to throw a tantrum and go to school naked. Maybe next time get her to go shopping with you and make it a mother and daughter moment?

Reply

Exactly, a uniform is a uniform, so there was really no need for her to take her daughter shopping with her. The only choice you (sometimes) get is whether you want to wear a skirt or pants but that's still not worth throwing a tantrum over.

or teach the little bitch to appreciate what she fucking gets. not everyone can afford to buy new clothes each year. I have clothes from years ago that I still wear and I appreciate every little thing my parents get me. OP needs to raise her daughter to be respectful and appreciate what she has.
