There are messages flashing in front of our children’s faces all day long. The life-size bus stop ads on the way to school, words heard on the television or radio and read in books, magazines and on computers. Even the clothes kids wear to school in elementary school can enforce negative stereotypes and preconceived perceptions.
Huge props for Clothes Without Limits that works together with other small business (including Budding Stem and Handsome in Pink) to share non-gender specific clothing that does not define who our children are.
“We need more girls who know that they can solve tough, real world problems and more boys who are interested in collaboration, not just competition. To get there we need to change the messages we’re sending kids.” – Jill and Jack Kids founder Jenn Neilson
