Keeping with today’s hip and cool trends when it comes to clothing can be a teenager’s biggest challenge. It all sounds so trivial to an adult, having to worry about what brand you wear to your high school class, but we’ve all been there once or twice. Remember those cold piercing stares that the popular kids would give you when you walked the hallway wearing your brothers hand me down from last year? These pressures are as real today as they were during your times and It is your responsibility as a parent to share in the burden by helping your child have a better chance of fitting in. Sometimes this can be important if not everything for a teenager. Studies have shown that kids who have a stable group of friends and those who have a successful social standing in their teen years develop better self esteem and become more successful in the future while those who have had a bad turn growing up will continue to spiral and have low self esteem and self worth.
The challenge in your mind at this point would probably be convincing yourself that paying hundreds of dollars in clothing options for your child is well worth the investment for developing self esteem. Remember that there shouldn’t be such a thing as “too good” for your child and you should never think twice about giving your kids the best that they can have in life. Now if budget is really your concern then look to the wisdom of experience and practice smart shopping principles. You can meet your kids halfway buy getting them those designer clothes at bargain price, killing two birds with one stone. You not only help your kids by creating a self esteem improvement device through cool clothes but you don’t feel bad because your wallet bled to death in the process.
Finding specialty outlets that carry wholesale prices isn’t very hard. There are several whole sale ware houses that carry designer goods and market them at discount prices. These are made possible because of the universal laws of supply and demand. Most of the time clothing companies make more than what they sell and to help break even with production costs they hold ware house sales. Now if the discounts here aren’t enough to tickle your fancy then take a bolder approach by going cyber. Internet auction sites, particularly eBay.com carry a lot of major discount choices at the same high quality that a retail store would have.
