My little boy refuses to wear pants, all of a sudden, and will only wear shorts. It's WWIII wrestling him into pants if I insist (and I pick my battles, and usually just skip it) and when he does have pants on, he hikes them up over his knees and holds them there...even when he's walking!
I only really want him to wear pants to church, and when it's cold outside (which it is) to avoid the disapproving stares of strangers who think I must not take care of him if I let him run around in shorts during winter...luckily we live in the desert so it only gets down into the 40's, but still!
What on earth is going on with this new "preference" of his, and should I even address it? I hate the out and out tantrum he throws about pants, but I feel like if I cave on this (as I have been, admittedly) then it sets the stage for possible issues later. Am I being ridiculous?
