Wardrobe wars


Whether it’s clothes, electronics, make-up or music, teenagers can be extremely territorial about their stuff, leading to spectacular bust-ups over who raided whose wardrobe or didn’t return something that they borrowed, and didn’t even have permission to borrow in the first place. You can mediate endlessly, you can lose your patience, or you can encourage them to work out a plan that everyone is happy with.

Coach them in how to put together a written agreement containing their own individualised rules for how and when they’re allowed to use each others’ gear.
