Mumsnet: To ban the wearing of shoes in our house?
More polarised debate on Mumsnet. Both shoes-off and shoes-on views are strongly represented there.
The people who say "We don't wear shoes in the house, but we would never ask guests" are not the middle-ground in this debate; they are on the shoes-on side. Nobody is debating whether you should take your own shoes off or make your children remove their shoes. The big question is whether you should ask guests for shoes-off.
