The trend for families to wear matching outfits or similar colors has continued to grow in popularity over the years. And why not? It’s fun, fashionable, and gives the children a feeling of belonging to an important, loving group.
Some families decide on a family motto, like Choose Kindness, Never Give Up, Mistakes Have the Power to Turn You Into Something Better.
These shared words unite the family. According to Thomas Lickona, author of How to Raise Kind Kids, we should “talk about these things in terms of shared goals—it means that you’re all in this together, that these values matter to all of you. You can also think of them as family mission statements. Have your children help come up with the qualities they think should define your family. The words should become a living part of the family.”
In the same way, family hobbies, inside jokes, and regular activities can also help solidify family togetherness and give children a safe space and a position of belonging. Combining the way you and yours choose to spend time together with your family identity is a wonderful way to celebrate your relationships and infuse them with meaning.
According to one source, family outfits can “strengthen your bond” and “pleasant activities, like getting dressed in the same outfit, will help you build enjoyable memories and get you together. There are also plenty of options for dresses with jokes that will bring you closer, as you can all share in the laughter. It is a significant part of strengthening the family dynamic to have fun together doing dumb stuff like dressing up in matching costumes on holiday excursions”
With that in mind, we’ve developed the Big Little section on our website. We have something for every family member.
