    No but people in second and third world countries usually have real issues to bother them.

    This just reaks of being a first world problem.

    As a general rule, I think your house, your rules. But I don't have one iota of concern over germs and floors. Germs are fricken everywhere - if I let myself worry about stuff like that I'd end up bat$hit crazy.

    I agree. If I am asked I take off my shoes (but keep a close eye on them) but I've never been asked. Nor does anyone I know require it.

    Believe it or not this was actually up for sale on my local Buy, Swap, Sell facebook page.
    So it's an achievable option, she only wanted $15 for it too.
    .....is that a whole body condom? Safe s.ex!!!


    Personally, I am a shoes off person, but if people come into my house and still have theirs on I won't tell them off.

    Best way to fix your issue? Wrap the crawling babe in cotton wool and glad wrap.

    Ok this is a whole spin off thread on its own but why do you keep a close eye on them?

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that mobile phones have more bacteria on them than a toilet seat.

    Quick, get the antibacterial wipes out!

    Because I spend a lot of money on my shoes and if we're at a place where there are heaps of people I don't want anyone accidnetly leaving with them. Or someone's kid playing with them. I love my shoes.

    Oh this is ridiculous but entertaining. If you don't want people wearing shoes in your house, tell them they have to take them off. Kids will be exposed to germs no matter what you do. Are they not allowed to play at the park because other kids are wearing shoes that have touched a toilet floor and then walked on the equipment? I don't think removing shoes will affect a child's health but if you're not comfortable with it, just make your house a shoes off house. It doesn't need to be an issue.
