Am I expecting too much when I assume my 7 1/2 year old DD can pick out her own clothes? I mean, that actually sort of match, that fit and are presentable for school? Today, for example, she picks out a bright red and lime green shirt with a puppy dog wearing a Santa claus hat, and hot pink leggings, with neon yellow socks.
And she would have gone to school without a second thought if I had let her.
My second question is, at her age, if she's okay with wearing something like that, should I just let her wear it? I feel like maybe I should pick my battles and if she doesn't care, maybe I shouldn't either?
