Do you let your children pick out what they will wear each day?

Yes, I do.  If I don't want them to wear it, it can't be in their dresser.

I provide a little guideance about what matches & try to steer them away from things that are too worn if they are going to school.  But otherwise, whatever they want to wear is what they wear.

(I even let my 4 yo say he doesn't want his coat even when the temps are in the 20s.  I just bring the coat along for when he changes his mind.)

Sometimes I do if there is time. I like to pick out clothes the night before because we are trying to be quiet in the morning because daddy sleeps on a different schedule than us.

The older 2 kids pick their own clothes but I help my 4yr old. Like she can pick the shirt and then I help find the pants, etc.

I did cringe this morning looking at the pics the preschool teacher put up in the display case. My son had on a blue, orange & white striped shirt w camouflage color pants. Oh well, this is just preschool.
