mismatched socks washing

As a child, I often heard groups of mothers being dismissive about women who let their children wear mismatched socks, it was a sign of a lazy parent and bad housekeeper apparently. I thought that was just an outmoded 1970s way of thinking but recently I have seen several parenting articles on the topic of how to avoid mismatched socks and quite a few of my friends have been complaining on Facebook about how much time they spend sorting socks and matching them up.

Does it really matter if a child is wearing mismatched socks?

My mother was horrified by odd socks too! It makes me feel awfully inadequate when I can't match socks but realistically speaking there are three young boys in the house, and they all take one sock off in the lounge room and one off in the yard or some equally nonsensical place! I think that's a reasonable excuse to not have them all matching.
No, I don't think it matters at all. I don't think it matters with adults either, but then all my socks are identical so it's not an issue for me.
It looks very cute when they are under 5 year's old.

After that, it would look nice to match,as it helps when they choose their own clothes to wear for the day.I think also on weekends is ok to miss match.
As for adult's, not that's not something I like to see.....too odd.(pun intended)!
My son actually prefers his socks mismatched - he will take neatly matched up pairs and re-pair them according to some logic that makes sense to him if not to me. It bothers me somewhat but I don't say anything, as it's him wearing them not me! But it did make me think about those gossiping women from my childhood, being horribly rude about the mothers of children at my school whose socks didn't match....
I hope it doesn't matter as my kids wear mismatched socks all the time lol
It doesn't matter to me. I think at one point, it was a fashion statement to wear unmatched socks!?!
I don't mind if they are mismatched provided they look similar. Sometimes my son wears socks that are different shades of grey.

Yes it does. It is very important that my children develop a sense of style from early. Therefore, no mismatches in socks or anything else.
Yes, it does!
It's lazy parenting, & does not 'help' child to learn organisation!
