I Live in the UK and I am middle class. Went to a Childs party today for an old school friends DD (they are incredibly middle class) and her group of mum friends (who are equally as middle class) but I couldn’t help but notice that all of the children looked... scruffy, for want of a better word. None of them had brushed their hair, they were all in mismatched clothes with muck on their faces. Didn’t look bathed.. I feel awful saying it, but I notice this also with the MC children at the DC school, has anyone else noticed it? I’m just curious as to why this seems to be a thing? Is it more of a privilege thing? Working class don't have much money so are weary of being judged as lazy by not doing children's hair? Is it that they also make an effort to dress children nicely so that they don't look like ‘the poor kid’ is it that if your middle class you don’t have that fear? Absolutely happy to be told IABU and judgemental but I am genuinely curious on the subject. Please only reply if you live in the UK and are middle class. Thanks Hattie.
