Does anyone else do this with their child's coat in the morning?

I have to get my son up early in the morning to get on the bus to head to preschool. I always wait until the last minute to leave and go to the bus stop because it still dark and its usually windy/cold and rainy. I DO NOT have time to argue with my son and make him put his coat on. Instead I carry the coat and wait until he asks me for it before putting it on. We never make it past the driveway before he wants it, but it just saves so much time!

No never. Get your coat on kid. It's cold outside. This is not up for discussion.

 Given that cold weather does not promote ill health it's not an issue for me. I never forced my children to wear a jacket simply because the temps were at a certain spot. Everyone has their own comfort level, not everyone needs a jacket just because it's under a certain temp.

No. I tell them to put it on. I don't think you're wrong though... its not hurting him.

My ds walks into school/the store etc with the hood on his head, no arms in it. He is seven...if he is cold he will put it on...
