Parental Responsabilities

Parental Responsabilities

Kids are vulnerable to a lot of outside influences that can have harmful effects. That is why parents have a huge responsibility over raising their kids to become healthy adults that are capabling of dealing with the complex outside world. But there is a lot of confusion involved as well, because a lot of parents might not have that much ideas on how to actually do that in practice. You might be wondering what a children’s clothes owner is talking about parenthood, but having worked in the industry for years.. I can say that I have a lot of experience with working with kids, seeing them grow with different kinds of parents and the influence that is has had. Ooh La La Mama has been always conserned about the future of children and for that we have seeked solutions far and wide. Both, from the clothing industry as well as elsewhere.

Not becoming too “preachy”, we like to talk from our own experience. Which is, that it is simply an almost impossible task to protect children from bad influences. Instead, being open is a very important task in order to make children more resistant and strong. Facing realities is the most important lesson a child can learn in it’s childhood. And for parents to be able to transmit that within upbrigning, they need to face the same realities themselves. That’s why we strongly believe that the biggest parental responsability is for the parents themselves to grow and become healthy adults.

We know that a lot of parents have not had this ability when you were grown up. But it’s time to end the vicious circle. And for that, we are writing cool stuff now!

Kids Are Smart & Vulnerable

In Front of Toy Store

We really believe that there needs to be balance when considering the upbringing of children. This in fact is probably the most difficult part in bringing up kids. And one thing that we are always concerned about, is the commercial world that is surrounded by them. With shopping items, not just clothes but just about anything available with a huge business behind. This all makes people take some rather unethical business moves. We as a clothing shop, have always put effort into creating an honest industry with sustainable products that target moms, rather then the kids themselves.

The balance that we often talk of, is that of giving your child freedom to explore and discover the world the way they see fit. Because kids really are very very smart, and underestimating them can effect their development. When it comes to advertising, and the modern commercial world in general kids become extremely vulnerable without the ability to protect themselves from the huge amount of ads they are subject to on a daily basis for example.

We really think that parents should put more focus into this problem, sense we can never trust the co-operative world. Smaller shops, like us have much more dedication yet higher prices. Unfortunately, this is another reality we understand that needs to be balanced. That’s why we focus always on sustainability so that a one time purchase would be cheaper in the long term. Kids are extremely smart, but we must protect them for their vulnerabilities too!

Lovely greetings,

Whimsical Children & Clothing

Kids Playing in Forest

We at Ooh La La Mama strongly believe, that kids should be free to play and enjoy the world as they go. Clothing are often what gives them that freedom, which is why parents should make more considerate choices when making purchases. But it’s not just clothing we want to focus on. But a whole […]
