Just curious as to whether most families have a rule about whether school uniform must be changed out of once back home for the day. When I was at school the first thing we had to do when we got home was change out of our uniform into casual clothes. Mostly my Dad's rule and he would not be happy if he came home and we were still in uniform. The main reason I'm guessing was to keep them clean so mum didn't have to wash them everyday and perhaps reduce the wear and tear but I think Dad just didn't like us in uniforms after school full stop.
DS has just started prep and I've not introduced any rules about his uniform yet so he's just been staying in it until bath time (one less rule to enforce at the moment!). Most days his uniform is dirty anyway and I figure why create extra washing by getting him to change into play clothes which will most likely also get dirty. He only has 2 sets of uniform so it does mean washing every second day at least but getting him to change wouldn't really reduce that! Although, I probably would get him to change if we were heading out again to the shops or something rather than just spending the rest of the day at home.
So, is there a uniform rule in your house? If so, is it mostly just for the practical purpose of less washing or some other reason?
