SHOPPING WITH TWEENS
(MATILDA JANE CLOTHING) Robyn Shirley, Independent Trunk Keeper & Team Leader with Matilda Jane Clothing has great tips on assisting your tween with their wardrobe.  Robyn believes it is important for mothers to go shopping in stores and online with their tween to educate them on what is appropriate and inappropriate clothing for their age.  Parents have the power to avoid shopping at stores known for objectification of women, or ones known to sell inappropriate clothing. Grandparents, fathers, aunts, uncles and trusted friends can also be great sources of support and encouragement for tweens.  To get some ideas on “age-appropriate” tween clothing options, visit www.435bymjc.com
