Mum told her toddler’s pants were ‘too scary’ for him to wear to daycare.

GracyEvans shared on the forum Mumsnet, asking the opinion of other parents if the request from her son’s preschool was reasonable.

‘DS [Darling Son] had some leggings on today – they’re gorgeous!’ she wrote. ‘They have monsters on (not scary) but apparently he isn’t allowed to wear them?’

The mum was told her son couldn’t wear the leggings because another parent had complained.

‘They don’t have a uniform, but apparently a mum said that they scared her daughter. WTAF,’ she said.

GracyEvans even shared a photo of the leggings which have a simple cartoon monster on them.

The thread has received over 430 comments, most in total shock telling the mum to ignore them.


Seriously?!  What on earth is the world coming to?

  • Oh really? I have seen some strange ones but there is nothing strange about these. There would be keeping the baby’s legs warm. They don’t depict violence.
    Yes some children are frightened of Santa. He is usually big, fat and has a beard.
    Some children don’t like beards at all and won’t willingly kiss or hug anybody with a beard, including their Dad they love when he doesn’t have one. Yes, I personally know a child like that. When I was a lot younger I had 2 nephews who at about the same age went half up the passage to Santa at a kid’s Christmas party, then ran back to Grandma or me to take them ujp to him.


  • Oh dear, really ??


  • So silly – guess the PC police are at it again.


  • Quite weird!


  • You can’t be serious can you! So silly!


  • Its hard to know what scares one person and not another – a friend of mine has a child terrified of Santa – good luck trying to ban him from everywhere at the moment!


  • What??? They are so cute, I want some for my babies!!
