For children younger than 3 years old, it's necessary to select baby boy clothing and girl clothing with a minimum quantity of fine accessories and ornaments. Small children can tear off and swallow buttons, spangles or straps from clothing. The best variant in this case, is to have clothes with snaps rather than conventional buttons which run the risk of being torn off and swallowed or stuck up a nostril. Therefore, to successfully choose clothes for both boys and girls, parents need to be especially very attentive to these concerns.
During the period from 6 months to 1 year, children of a different sex -- both male and female - should start to dress in clothes not only in different colors, but also in different styles that designate gender. Physical activity is inherent in boys. They are inquisitive and vigorous; love outdoor games, therefore more prone to frequent falling, rolling around in dirt and tearing their clothes. That is also the reason while selecting boys clothing, it is necessary to take into account that there are two important criteria present: the clothes should not constrain the movements of a child and should be free, and the material should be of high quality and durable.
In any clothes, winter or summer, the boy should feel himself free. The cut of boys clothing should be so that in clothes it was convenient for a child to run, jump, climb or even to fight. Boys start to learn the surrounding world a little bit later than girls; however, they do it more actively.
The choice of boys clothes at modern children's clothing shops is never ending, however, not always boys clothing meet all shown requirements. The majority of manufacturers of boys clothes make trousers, jackets and shirts for boys of dense and strong materials like denim.
Many parents prefer blue jeans, velveteen or dense knitted fabric. Such material washes well and can be cleaned, and also protects the child from painful grazes and scratches due to falling and collisions.
When choosing boys clothing, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the item has not been overloaded with decorative elements. The beads, straps and sets of embroidery are not pertinent on boys clothing. However, the majority of boys clothes with such various accessories as buttons, valves, buckles, hoods and iron buttons appear to be purchased quite often and can present a health hazard for very small children.
Some psychologists consider that such predilection of boys for numerous metal subjects is one of elements of the sexual gender comprehension, becoming for a little boy a part of the accepted male characteristics. Besides, numerous pockets -- for example waybills -- can vary much as it is useful for a boy to keep carious objects safe.
Children of preschool and younger school age frequently put in their pockets a huge amount of completely unnecessary, and sometimes useless - at least from an adult's point of view -- objects. However, children, especially little boys, tend to be selfless and frequently independent, and subject to investigating the world around them.
