The Great Debate

My 8th grade son was to participate in a debate at school. This was the culmination of a six-week project. Researching, reading, gathering talking points and facts. He was prepared. Except.

The final part was to dress the part.

Uh oh.

This is a young man who wears jeans, t-shirts, athletic shoes, and a hoodie. Daily.

So, we went shopping. What to wear. It was the great debate.

  • Blue shirt or white shirt?
  • Silky tie or cloth tie?
  • Blue pants or black pants?
  • Silver buckle or gold buckle?
  • Oxfords or lace-ups?

Ultimately, I encouraged him to pick out what he would feel most confident in.

I think he won the confidence debate, don’t you?
