What Is Most Important About What You Wear?

What Is Most Important About What You Wear?

Make up cards listing criteria. Some suggestions:

  • Fits well
  • Everyone else is wearing something like it
  • New
  • Expensive brand
  • Clean
  • Modesty
  • Supports the activity you’re doing
  • Don’t keep wearing the same thing
  • Other ideas

Ask your child to put these in order of importance to them. Do they think others would order them the same way?

Consider making up a few sets of cards so the family can do it at mealtime and then discuss where their choices are the same or different.

Ask relatives to go through the exercise when they visit. Ask grandparents if the rules have changed for them since they were little?
