Introducing Words of Wonder a new and exciting unisex clothing collection for children. We use positive words to start conversations and encourage children to express their thoughts and feelings.
Created by Clare Cox a former fashion buyer. Clare lives in Bristol with her husband Tony, daughter Kitty and cat Marley.
Explaining how the concept for the brand came about Clare said: “I was inspired to create Words of Wonder after reading an article about children’s mental health. The statistics speak for themselves, currently 1 in 10 children age 5-16 years has a mental health problem but it is still a subject that many find hard to talk about. That’s the equivalent of three children in every class.
I’m not a mental health expert or a perfect mum but I’m trying my best and learning every step of the way. I haven’t got all the answers but by listening and giving Kitty my time I hope I can inspire her to believe in herself and speak easily about her emotions and feelings.”
Words of Wonder believes talking with our children helps their emotional wellbeing and is supporting Place2Be – one of the UK’s leading children’s mental health charities by donating 10% of the sale price from every t-shirt sold.
