Has your child started asking if they can start choosing their own clothes? That is alright. It would be best if you actually gave them as much freedom as possible. Children actually love doing things, and I love exploring. A couple of months ago, a friend of mine said that her three-year-old daughter wanted to wear whatever she wanted to wear from then on. She was a little confused at first, but she started letting her child choose whatever she wanted to wear. In this article, I will be talking about how you can let your child choose their own sense of fashion.
Sometimes, children don’t know any better. When it is like that, they should actually be taught what to wear. It would be a great idea if you started letting your child know what they should wear and what they should not wear. You should make sure that you instill a sense of fashion from a very young age. How can you do that? There are many ways you can do that.
Firstly, you can start by providing choices. Most 2 to 3-year-olds are basically dictators who want to grab control of anything and everything. They want to do it with whatever possible. They are hyperactive toddlers who want to be in control of everything. If your child is like that, do not fret, because he or she is going to dance to the beat of their own rhythm and that is okay. You can actually do a good job at parenting them. You can tell them what to wear and what not to wear. You can show them some videos on YouTube as to how children their age countries. You should allow them to experiment with clothing. Make sure that you always ask for their opinion. Even though children do not know any better, most of the time, they will tell you what they want to wear and what they do not want to wear. A lot of times it boggles down to comfort. Sometimes, children say that they do not want to wear certain clothing, because they feel that it could be a little uncomfortable. I feel that putting your children into uncomfortable clothing is one of the cruellest things that you can do. In a lot of cases, they could be scared to tell you that it is uncomfortable, that is why you need to ask them a couple of times if they are comfortable wearing whatever they are wearing. If they clearly tell you that they do not like it, take it off them and give them something else to wear.
Always respect your child’s opinion.
