Jelly Shoes and Don'ts



I am not one to question anyones parenting skills, trust me, my crotchfruit raising skills are not exactly the gold standard of parenting to which anyone should aspire, but occasionally I read something that is SO stupid, that I need to comment.

It is this, here is the link to the article in The Metro, http://metro.co.uk/2016/06/07/next-jelly-shoes-left-toddler-with-bloody-agonising-cuts-after-just-30-minutes-5930114/


and here is the headline for everyone who cannot be bothered to click the link.


Well WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT?

JELLY SHOES AND BARE SKIN ARE A BAD MATCH?

I am no style guru but even I know that on a hot day, jelly shoes will rub your skin like a cheese grater and will not stop until they taste your blood. They are evil shoes sent from Sports Direct (Hell) to claim our feet. I hardly think that this is newsworthy. Stick a pair of socks on with the sandals, I don't even care how old you are, I'm not going to judge you for it. 

Plus, if you did click the link and look at the pictures, is it just me or are those shoes too small for that little girl? 


Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I thought exactly the same, they definitely look too small! Poor child

  2. Agreed. Definitely too small and ask what has been mentioned before, socks? Plus, the child is so young, should she be in those kind of ill fitting shoes? and if it was hurting a little, wouldn't she of said? my little boy is always telling me when things hurt or irritate him.
    Bad parenting and looking for a scape goat I say..

  3. I made this mistake a couple of years ago after forgetting the pain as a child, but it was my own fault! Also, the actual cut was tiny, why people go to the press with such things is beyond me!

  4. I seriously do not understand some people. Jelly sandals require socks, they are also not the most appropriate footwear for kids running around playing for long periods of time. I'm a mum & I know this.
