Do your kids like dressing warmer? Or is it a
struggle to get them to wear a coat?
She doesn't give me a hard time about wearing a coat.
It is not a struggle with my girls, they don't mind dressing warm.
My whole family hates to dress in coats and thick clothes.
My 7 year old never wants to zip it. I think it's too much effort for him. Lol. I make sure he zips before he leaves but when he comes home it is usually unzipped.
We're pretty warm year round, so no coats, but it is sometimes difficult to get her to take a sweater.
I don't worry about him wearing a coat. He is 11 and if he wants to freeze that on him. I tell him what the temp is out and it's his decision to wear it or not. This morning he wore his hoodie with a hat and gloves.
With my 5.5 yo, its a struggle to get him to wear short sleeves & shorts in the summer! So it isn't usually a struggle to get him to wear a coat/hat.
With my 4 yo, it is a struggle to get him to wear a coat. There have been plenty of days this fall where he was the only kid in his preschool class not wearing a coat. Even this morning, it was definitely chilly (30s?) and he wouldn't wear a coat when DH brought him to meet me.
He will wear one when he gets cold, though. He's gone outside to play without one & come back in requesting it. I wouldn't let him go out to play if its really cold without proper gear, otherwise, he'll wear a coat etc when he gets cold.
he doesn't mind when i tell him to wear a coat
No hard time here!!
It hasn't been a struggle. They understand that it's cold and they need them.
