It's cheaper to make own gifts
I TOTALLY agree with Barbara Bowers regarding the Clayton school and 'theme days' (Letters, March 9).
My three granddaughters go to a Clayton nursery/primary school.
Surely a 'Mother's day' card would be easier than selling Mother's day presents.
Children could easily go shopping with their fathers, as was the norm in my younger days.

The girls get upset when they are told 'no' and most fathers enjoy taking their children to get a gift for mum.
It's generally cheaper than school gifts too.
For three girls to come home and say they have to have dressing-up outfits within a couple of days to go to school is also ridiculous and expensive.
Surely teachers are able to help the children to design posters and make masks within the school to suffice for 'theme days' and not ask for party costumes.
This would then eliminate the problem of children being upset when coming from lower paid families.
All children would be 'equal' when making their own at school.
