What messages would you rather your child wears?
“Born to wear diamonds.”
Or: “I need a hero.”
Maybe: “Happy and smiley.”
“Fun, fashion and friends.”
Or “Social butterfly.”

Or what about “The scholar.”
“Think outside the box,” or “Adventure’s ahead.”
If you could choose a message which one would you want your child proudly conveying to the world?
Writer Clementine Ford played a game of swaps at her local chain store, swapping the boy’s T-shirts for the girls while shopping for children’s clothing.
Ms Ford wrote: “Just did a little espionage in K-Mart switching the “happy and smiley” tees from the girls’ aisle with the “Brave and Strong” ones from the boys."
Her post quickly racked up the likes with howls of bravo and virtual cheers of applause.
One poster writing: “My daughters are brave and strong. After all, they take after their mum…No way would I buy the girl intended tee.”
Of course she’s not the first to call out the major retailers to give parents more options when it comes to messages and designs on kids' clothing.
Just last month an eight-year-old British girl Daisy Edmonds called out British retailer Tesco after she saw the T-shirts on offer.
