But imagine this - son goes to a chalet party and stay overnight. At bed time, he takes out his socks and put them on. I am betting most young people don't wear socks at bed time? And I imagine some boys would go,"eh tofu, why you wear socks?! Still baby ar?" and then I wonder if his little gf would go,"aiyo tofu, so gu niang leh! Wear socks?!"

If tofu boy goes,"my mummy says wear socks at bedtime is good.", I am quite confident my son ain't gonna get a wife. :stupid:


Who knows? If he is charismatic enough, he might actually convert everyone at the party to wear socks to sleep :)

Is wearing socks to sleep considered a 'baby' or 'girly' thing? I've only ever worn socks to sleep in the winter, and similarly for my daughters, but to me, it's just a personal idiosyncracy and I wouldn't necessarily think it's only for the young or for girls. I don't think you should worry about what others think.

Your son's (imagined) response is probably what will cause him to be laughed at - if he is old enough to go for a sleepover, then he should have his own reasons for doing something, not merely because you told him to. So if you want him to have a response that won't be laughed at, convince him why it's a good thing to do, and teach him how to give a reasoned response. And even if others think it's silly or funny, encourage him to have the confidence to be different if he feels that it's sensible.

Exactly my sentiments. I don't want a child who does things because "mummy says so". It would be my failure as a parent.

Btw slmkhoo, you are posting lesser these days. Been busy?

Jennifer, I really feel better about the socks thing after what chief, you and slmkhoo have said.

China - where we used to live. Mainly to see people, not places.
