The Proper way of Marking Kids an Children Clothes
Instead of writing your child’s name on clothing to tell who’s jeans (socks…underwear…etc.) are whose, use the dot system. Mark the clothing with permanent marker in a discreet place… One dot for the biggest kid (notice I said biggest, not oldest), two dots for the next biggest, etc. That way, when you hand something down to the next kid, you can just add a second dot, and you’ll always know which clothing belongs to whom. This is especially helpful on on socks and underwear, which all look alike!
