Teach Your Child He Is Not A Puppet

As your child grows, you will notice that they are prone to favourite colours, they like certain books and movies, and prefer laceup or slip on shoes.  Suddenly, they seem to get sucked into the hype that is swirling around them. It is important for a parent to know that this exists and how to help them be their own person.

Regularly ask your child - what do you love about this show?

What do you think is so cool about that toy?

How do you feel when you wear that colour?

With the marketing and advertising worlds with a steady grip on adult and children consumers, it is so easy to get sucked into their pitch.

Children also love the hype of popularity and the latest craze. Being involved in something is quite hypnotic.
