    Do your kids put shoes on every time they go outside and then take them off again?
    We live in Qld so it is easy as the children have thongs at the backdoor to throw on when they play outside. It is too sweaty to be wearing closed in shoes in summer, easier/cooler to slip your sandles off at the door.

    We prefer no shoes in the house, but I don't enforce it in winter as it is too cold on the tiles.

    We even have had tradies come to our home, see that I don't have shoes on and remove theirs - even when I have said it is ok to leave them on.

    I'm currently in Japan and our shoes are on/off all day. We went through a temple yesterday - no shoes (everyone has socks/stockings on) but they had slip ons for you to use in the toilets, no worries about stepping in pee.

    Shoes off always hAd been growing up as a habit I take shoes off at anyone's house. I feel weird wearing shoes inside a house. I like to wear socks though so often take some if it's someone I know well 😏

    My 3 year old either puts a pair of slip on sand shoes or thongs on when she plays in the backyard and takes them off when she comes inside. No reminders needed.

    Yep, in winter it's gumboots and summer it will be crocs. No way do I want sheep poo on my carpet. DH will walk inside with his on, just on the lino but it means I have to sweep at least twice a day.

    For me I am much the same.
    Don't like dirty shoes being used inside the house ....
    When I am a visitor I take my shoes off....
    I wonder if the public can buy those things that you slip over shoes like in hospitals when you go into surgery. ...
    They would be ideal in this situation. ...

    Yes kids do this. My two year old removes her shoes be herself when inside and when she wants to go outside brings me her sandals.

    I keep shoes at the front near the door but everyone also has a pair of flip flops at the back door.

    Easy. Tell them to take them off/put them on. Both girls 2&4 have sandals by the back door to wear outside and bare footed inside. On muddy days I have a bucket/towel by the door so they can wash their feet before they come in. I have a little shoe shelf near the trampoline for the girls to put their shoes on before they play on it.

    I'm just thinking about the hundreds of kids I've had through our house for parties and play dates since DD1 was born. I couldn't count how many. It would do my head in trying to get shoes on and off each time they went in and came out. Our back doors are basically open from November to April unless we are out or away. Our yard is an extension of our house really.

    Like I said each to their own. My kids rarely wear shoes anyway.

    Hmm...I walk everywhere I can. Would people really want me to take off sneakers I had been walking in for an hour?

    I wouldn't take my shoes off unless I was asked to, even if there's a rack there, I probably wouldn't notice a sign, I'd need to be told. I would feel weird just kicking my shoes off at someone else's house uninvited, that feels too familiar to me... i dunno... yeah... but I'm pretty easy going, I just take them off if I was asked no worries.
