Children, Clothing, and Confidence

Children, Clothing and Confidence

Children start undressing themselves as early as 12 months old, usually by pulling off their easy-to-reach socks. After 18 months old, they start to show interest in their clothing and might complain when they’re uncomfortable in something, or show favoritism to certain items of clothing. They learn to dress themselves in stages and form opinions about the comfort and style of their clothes.

In our digital brochure, Children, Clothing, and Confidence: Putting It All Together With Garanimals, we discuss how important clothing is to a child’s confidence, and offer tips on knowing when they are ready, how to encourage them, etc.  Garanimals was founded in 1972 based on the idea that there is a connection between a child’s clothing and self-esteem. Well-known psychologist, Dr. Joyce Brothers, stated, “Garanimals…helps the pre-schooler to handle his/her own wardrobe. That sense of ‘I Can’ fosters the child’s growing sense of independence.” Although we no longer utilize the matching tag system from our early days, our entire collection can be easily mixed and matched, allowing kids to dress themselves and feel confident in their abilities, independence, and personal style.
