My kids don't have flat sheets. ETA

They have fitted but they hate flat sheets. I have two or three that will fit their beds, but never bought anymore.

I have GOBS of fitted sheets, so they have plenty and they can even choose colors. They just prefer the fuzzy blankets to the sheets.

They are three and four. DS is autistic with sensory issues, DD just hates them.

Is it abusive to not create a huge fuss to make them use the flat sheets? They will scream and fight for hours if I try.

They have NEVER liked them.

My aunt says I'm abusing them by letting them choose their fitted sheets and a soft blanket instead of making them sleep in an actual sheet and comforter.

ETA: Glad to hear I'm not completely crazy lol.

Ummm..what? Why would that be abusive? We never use flat sheets in our house. EVER. We don't have sensory issues, I just think they are pointless.

I don't see a issue they have a fitted sheet. My kids like the flat sheet it's all just preference.

 My kids won't sleep under them !  LOLOL drives me insane... I figure someday when they "grow up" they will learn to use them...

 When I make the bed, I put them on.. they just sleep on top of it.

None of us use them....well, actually, the kids cover with them in the summer if it's too hot to use a blanket. Other than that, they are used for forts.
