    Read on about what constitutes proper attire.


    At this point, it is equally important to define what dressing appropriately actually entails. Proper attire is more often than not governed basically by the following:
    1. The Place/venue:
    Please explain to yaya that if she must accompany the kids to a party or dinner, it is important to dress a bit more formally. Necklines should be high, skirts long or pants if possible. Shoes are also required. Hair should always be neat and fixed and nails cut short with no nail polish.

    2. The Time of Day:
    Usually, the later into the day --- the more formal the attire needed. Dependent on your own household rules, flip-flops/tsinelas are usually discouraged outside your house.

    3. The Occasion/purpose:
    Remind yaya to take into account the reason for her being “out”. If it is for a children’s party with kids running amuck. She better make sure she has proper footwear in case she needs to run or play with her ward. If she is sent to the bank, she needs to make sure that she does not look like she is going to a party. If she is sent to an event to help serve during a dinner/meal --- she should make sure that she is dressed cleanly and neatly. If you end up passing by a Wake or funeral mass, it is highly recommended that she stay away from bright colors out of respect. Always tell yaya that uniforms are not a sign of condescension. In fact, it makes life easier for both of you in that, there is no angst or confusion as to what one should wear. Believe me, she will thank you later.

    At the end of the day, this situation of not liking Yaya’s fashion sense is really one that is solvable. The important thing is that you are honest with yaya regarding your concerns and make sure you tell her in a way that does not belittle or demean her being.

    Clothes don’t always make the person and neither should it ruin her spirit.
