all the little shoes that come off in the house? Do you make the kids put them in their room or is there one central location for shoes?

Do your kids take shoes off as soon as they come in?

They take them off when they come in and are either at the front door on a mat, in the front closet or at the back door, depending on where we came in.

Front hallway thinger, they get lined up under their coats, the little kids can put theirs in the bottom drawer of the organizer with mittens/hats in it.

Ours are thrown under the coats at the front door. It's a disaster and I'm trying to find something else to do with them. I'm thinking about buying a tote/bin and having the kids put their shoes in there.

they take them off where ever and it drives me nuts. I have to figure out what to do. Mine always come off by my chair and my moccasins are then worn around the house.

My kids have lockers, so their shoes are in there.

shoes come off as soon as they come in the house.

The kids, hubby's and mine are taken off wherever and usually find there way back to their respective rooms by the end of the day.

The kids shoes are *supposed* to be put in their rooms, they are usually under the kitchen table or in the bathroom though.
Ours just go somewhere in our room, as I look around right now I see 7 1/2 pairs just scattered in the room...

I have a shoe organizer set up in the front closet and that is where all the shoes are supposed to go.

There are shoes everywhere. By the back door, in their rooms, lined up downstairs.....and they are giant sized shoes too...the oldest three wear mens 13, 11 1/2 and 9 1/2.

They're all in the laundry room on a mat or in the garage on shelves, so really only in one area-of course that'll change as they all get older, but right now everyone uses the door that enters the laundry room, so its all there hidden behind a door

I have four baskets in the hallway where you first walk in.

I have two girls in the mix, 10 and 15, so you can imagine there's tons of them!

I was complaining about this last year and got the advice to have a shoe box for each child. I did that and it works great actually. Under the coats in the closet in the living room each kid has a milk crate they throw their shoes into. DH and I line ours up next to the crates as he wears a size 14 and a milk crate wouldn't get us too far with him

Ideally, I want to have DH put up some coat hooks and bins in the basement (we have a walk in) so the kids would come in downstairs and take their shoes and coats off downstairs, alleviating the copious amounts of sand that are in my living room at any given time.

I have a shoe/coat closet in my Foyer. Shoes are never allowed anywhere else in the house.

HA...well...they take them off by the front door...which is ok...but they are supposed to put them in the closet in their room...um...ya...that doens't happen....and Olive usually carries one (only one) off and we can't find them when it's time to go....

We once had a cubby for their shoes....it's out in the garage now (we moved)....I have a new drawer thingy thing I was either going to give my oldest for additional clothing room....or to put by the door after we paint it fun colors for shoes...hmmm...

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
