Recipricocity

re-post

You may not have a baby at crawling age
But if you ask visitors to your home to remove their shoes, you send a message that it is acceptable to keep your home shoe-free. That makes life easier for those who do have crawling babies.

You may not have a new carpet
You may have an old carpet that needs replacing or a wooden
floor that is covered in scratch marks. But if you have a shoes-off policy, it will make it easier for those who do have a new carpet to do the same.

You may not live in an area where there is pesticide on the ground
But if you have a no-shoes rule in your house, it will send a signal that it is okay for those who do.

I find your blog interesting and thought-provoking. I never gave shoes in the house much thought before. We all take our shoes off as soon as we come in and put them in a shoe cupboard because common sense dictates that dirty shoes = a dirty floor, but I never really thought beyond that until now.

Thanks for your visit to my blog.
