Does the above picture look innocent?
Do kids really need fashion? With the new breed of celebrity kids mushrooming on the horizon there is a huge trend that advocates fashion for small children. Now it is one thing to make your child aware of the importance of dressing well , but to encourage them to dress like adults iS so frustrating.Here are some suggestions on how to make them effortlessly trendy without imposing fashion on them.
1) Teach them cleanliness and neatness.
It is worthwhile to inculcate that habit early on in your kids.
2) Good posture.
Time and again I have advocated the role of a good posture in how you look. Stand up straight, shoulders back, chin up and a smile on your face. And that’s it …you are raring to go!
3) Physical activity.
Kids should know the importance of exercise and a good healthy diet. If they have the habit of leading a healthy lifestyle, automatically they shall grow up into beautiful adults.
4) Teach them by example.
How you dress up, how you carry yourself , what is your maintenance routine, all this rubs off on your children. Behave the way you would like them to behave.
5) No make up for kids.
Now that is something all of us should follow. It looks terrible if you let your child wear make up. At least not till they are in their teens.
6) Make them wear the right lingerie at the right time.
This is of utmost importance. Any delay in starting the right bra will lead to physical and emotional problems for your girl. I know it sounds too gross but believe me this is one of the most important milestone in dressing up as an adult. A delay in starting the wearing of a bra, a wrong fit and a lack of communication with your daughter may lead to loss of self confidence later on on life.
7) Teach them to be what they are.
Instill confidence in them and teach them to love themselves. Rest will surely follow. After all it’s not clothes that make the man.
