  • If you think itis cold enough for your kids to wear winter cloths. Then do it.

  • Why dont' you ask your kids if they are cold?? I send a jacket off to school with my kids and they don't wear it most of the time.... they simply run hotter then we do. Generally they say dress your kids in what you would wear... then will tell you if they are hot!!

  • That depends on the weather. However, if it's not too cold out, why would you add layers and make them intentionally hot?
    I say, do what you think is comfortable for them. They're the ones that are going to be too warm or too cold.

  • The rule of thumb I had always heard is if you are warm then they probably are too and if you are cold they probably are too.If they are old enough to tell you go with that You are their mom do what you think is best but if you are wearing a sweatshirt and they are in a T-Shirt then that's not good IMO

  • It depends on the weather and how your kids are. My sons "run" hot, meaning, they tend to be warm naturally. So unless its really cold out, I don't bundle them up. I get some comments at times, but I know my kids. They get cranky if they get too hot.

  • Here in NY it's still warm out. My kids haven't worn long pants yet this year.
