I would argue otherwise.

Dressing up takes over as the new dressing down

I've always blamed the dotcom years for making casual dress acceptable not only in the workplace but also at fancy restaurants, opera gala nights and other black-tie affairs. Khakis and a golf shirt became the uniform of every Tom, Dick and Harry whether they were in on the internet boom or not.

Too much, too young

Sullen teenagers are not pleasant. They exude rebellion, lock themselves in their rooms and give little acknowledgement of your presence. Efforts to break the ice are passed off with a stare. Think war zones. That was my home environment a few weeks back. I had done nothing to deserve such treatment.

School uniform makes life easier

I'm writing in response to the letter 'Uniform complaint' (Young Post, February 28).

The writer thinks wearing a uniform is not beneficial, but I think there are many advantages.

Firstly, I don't agree that school uniforms are expensive.

A uniform costs about HK$250.
