When times are good and parents have more disposable income, they are more willing to spend money on name brand items of clothing. As times get harder and money is tighter, the same drive to purchase these items decreases. That doesn’t mean you need to lie off of your clothing security. Just because there is a decrease in desire to buy the clothing, doesn’t mean there is a decrease in desire for the clothing.
What we end up seeing is a combination of one of two events. The first is the martyr syndrome. Well meaning parents spend what little income they can on their kids. They feel that they must be taken care of before the parent’s own needs. Because they still have their own list of wants that they are unable to afford, these parents might turn to theft to supplement their own wants.
The flip side is that when a parent’s cash runs short, teens and tweens (who rely on their parents for spending cash) are left without. That means the designer jeans and fashionable accessories are not as easy to come by.
Both groups can succumb to their own personal pressures and turn to theft. Security tags on clothes are an effective deterrent as neither of these groups is willing to risk too much effort for fear of getting caught.
