Just couple of days ago, I was dressing up for my one year old son and I noticed something that got me really thinking along the lines of this subject. On the waistline of his knickers was a teeny-weeny label with the inscription ‘Mini Rebel’. What?! Arrant nonsense!
For those who know me very well, I’m hyper-cautious about the inscription on the things that I wear, how much more my children. Straight on, I ripped it. And this is because to a great extent, I understand the impact of labels on our personality, image, self-esteem, self-confidence and ultimately our reputation.
