Teaching Kids to Care for Their Clothes
Life cannot be boring if you are a kid. There are so many things to do in their world. And surely the more messed up a kid becomes, the more fun these activities are. it is not bad, of course, to have fun and end up in much disarray because this is what kids really like to do. Losing themselves and getting dirty is what they want to do once in a while. Yes, clothing can suffer in this kind of activity. Clothes get dirty. It gets torn. And when they eat stuff, it gets to their clothes which give it stains. And when their clothes are ruined, parents need to do the frustrating job of buying them new ones. We get frustrated when their new clothes don’t fit them anymore, but more so when their fit clothes are too ruined to wear again. It is not convenient nor cheap to buy new clothes for your children frequently. The good news is that there are things that parents can do to avoid this fast turnover of clothes.
One thing that parents can do to help their children take care of their clothes is to give them clothes that they will want to take care of. Boys can be the rough on their clothes but if you buy them the brands that they really like such as Kenzo boys and Indikidual, they perhaps might look after them. They ca n forget that they are wearing their best clothes sometimes but it is less likely that they will make the same mess with it as with their other clothes. Or, you can buy them shirts that have their favorite cartoon characters or sports personality printed on it. They will then want to take care of their shirt to make them last long.
Buying your children hard wearing clothes could help if you don’t want to keep on buying new clothes for them. Although these tough clothes are the more expensive ones, it comes out cheaper than having to buy new ones over and over again.
Another thing that you can do is to set specific play clothes for your children. Don’t let your kids wear their best clothes during play time, just like you wont wear your best clothes when you will have a tough task to do. Rough times should be times when they are wearing their play clothes. It is difficult to stop kids from playing rough, but if they have a set of play clothes then you wouldn’t mind so much if they come home all tattered from play.
Sometimes you just have to come to terms with having to buy new clothes for your kids who always end up damaging their clothes. It is really expensive to have kids, but if you can teach them to respect and take care of their belongings, you will find yourself saving money and they will have learned to be more sensible with their possessions.
