This week, I was forwarded an interesting article from the UK’s Daily Mail that describes a strange new trend among primary school kids in Britain. Apparently, at the end of the school year, these elementary schools host a miniature version of the American high school prom. Complete with professional hairstyling, expensive dresses and even tuxedos.
The article cites rising concerns about the financial cost of these types of events, but also the bizarrely grown-up nature of a “prom” in the elementary school setting.
Would you encourage your little ones to attend prom before their time? What do you think about the primary school prom trend? You tell us!
