If you’re like me, and you live in the northeast, your family has probably been preparing for the big blizzard that’s coming our way tomorrow. Now, my family isn’t completely crazed like some other people we’ve seen… I mean, it’s just a snowstorm, it’s not like the world is coming to an end. We just made sure grocery shopping was done over the weekend, and we’re stocked up on flashlight batteries just in case. Hopefully everyone is overreacting for nothing, and it won’t be as bad as we all think it’s going to be. But better safe than sorry, right?
We’ve had children come to our house in the middle of winter with nothing but a light spring jacket on. We’ve also had kids come to us in the middle of summer wearing wool sweaters. Many children either don’t have the clothing they need for whatever season it is, or the parents don’t know how to properly dress their children and it’s up to my parents to get to a store immediately and buy the kids new wardrobes. By the way, you get a clothing allowance from DSS for the kids, but you should always be prepared to go out of pocket for things. I’ll have more on that in a future post. My point is, while everyone’s out rushing to stock up on cookies before the big storm, some little kids aren’t even being given the proper clothing for winter, even if their parents have the means to provide them with what they need.
