Does your child care about name brands?

Neither of my kids seem to care at all about name brands. I know this is a big deal in school though. We all remember the kid who wore the knock offs and got made fun of. Unfortunately, kids in general do seem to care about them!

What about your kiddos? Have they ever asked for specific brands?

    My kids don't worry about name brands and I believe it starts with what the parent instills in them. If you make having the coolest this or that be an issue than they will learn to want that more often. I have a friend that her son is only 10 and if he doesn't have the latest Jordan's than he is not happy. It's sad because name brand isn't that important. As long as my kids have shoes, clothes, etc then I'm not picky. Glad my kids are not picky and grateful for what they have or are given.

    I absolutely agree with you. One of my sisters did this two to of her kids. If they liked something, she would tell them they could not wear it because it wasn't "in." She instilled in them from a very young age that they have to wear what is in style. Now they are young adults, and she regrets it because they are about material things and name brand everything.

      My kids aren't really focused on name brands luckily or I'd be spending a fortune on clothes. Mine are pretty go with the flow type of kids and aren't picky at all.

        Man, I hope my kids aren't namebrand oriented... Albeit, Goodwill and yardsales tend to have some good name brand stuff sometimes!

        That sounds so frustrating to me... There are so much better ways to "judge" a person than the logo on their clothes or shoes.

          My children are too young to right now. Jaina does not care as long as her dress and skirts twirl. She has too look like a "princess" or "little diva" every time she dresses. I do not wear name brands unless they are brought from thrift stores or consignment shops. We usually shop there or clearance racks.
