Imagine my glee when this year, Marshalls approached me to participate in a back-to-school campaign where I could go into one of their many locations and pick out back-to-school merchandise from their wide selection of designer brands. What do I get? School supplies? Backpacks? Clothing? Footwear? The possibilities were endless. Both hubby and I grew up in loving homes, but neither of our families had the extra income to afford designer brands. Now that we have our own family, we’re blessed that we can ‘afford’ to provide a little more for our children, but we have always tried to instill in them that material things are not what define you. Your true friends will be by your side whether you wear the latest fashion or hand-me-downs. Having said that, as parents, we also know how difficult these teen years can be – the insecurities that arise from it and the desire to be accepted as they discover who they are. So we strive to achieve a balance of providing them with those things that we couldn’t necessarily have while we grew up and giving them all they want, yet not becoming unappreciative of their blessings.
There are, of course, many other combinations to be made but I hope this gives you a few ideas and helps you taking on the daunting task of back-to-school shopping with your teen boy.
To make it even a little bit easier, Marshalls is giving away $100 Marshalls gift card! To enter for a chance to win, just leave me a comment below letting me know: “What Back to School style are your kids looking for this year?”
