Ways to keep socks and shoes on a 17 month old

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Okay,my little man is contantly pulling off his socks and shoes..no matter what the weather if its cold, if its raining..the socks and shoes are off before we even get in the door most the time. He literally throws them off in the store. I tried letting him realize his feet are cold..yeah..it didn't work. Any tips on keeping them on his little feet? I feel terrible letting him go without them, especially in the cold! But its either that  or go chasing socks and shoes across parking lots.

If I did that I would be pulling the car over every 5 minutes and never get anything done except keeping his shoes on his feet. I can't stand over him 24/7. Seriously..I refer to the backseat of my car as the place that socks and shoes go to die.

Right there in yellow, stop "letting" him go without them, he takes them off and you put them right back on him, he takes them off again you put them right back on again, don't give him the option.

Neither of my kids ever took their shoes off

I would say if you are desperate, duct tape them on.

When you figure it out spread the word. There is no way to keep their socks and shoes on at all.

My son also loves to take his shoes and socks off in the car, thats ok, but as soon as we stop and I go to get him out his shoes and socks are right back on his feet. I don't worry about shoes and socks in the car, or in the house, but while we are out and about if he takes his stuff off I make him stop what he is doing to put his stuff back on, he doesn't like it but he has no choice.

This is a question for the ages lol.  At some point they do stopstop (don't they?).  All you can do is double knot them.

My 9 year old DD still hates socks and shoes. She wears them to school and in public when she can't wear sandals. They are the first thing to come off when she walks in the door and the last thing she puts on. It is her preference and always has been.

Sheet metal screws.

Seriously, though, telling him no and putting them back on is really all you can do.
