Winter attire for kids spin off from another post
So if you live in a place it is bitterly cold in the winter usually in the negative digits. Then it gets up to be 45deg F.
My question is how do you then dress your kids for outside? For us once it reaches 45 deg F that is pretty warm. We have the kids wear a jacket but don't demand hats or mittens unless extremely windy.
I ask because I was called a bad mom because I don't think that at 45 deg is still really cold and kids should not be without hats at that temp. I think it is relative as to where you live as to what is considered extremely cold or warm temps.
By 50 deg Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers are usually in shorts and just sweatshirts for school. Especially when we are used to temps most of the winter in temps of negative digits. With windchills this past week we were around negative 40 deg F. So at 45 deg sunny and no wind that is really warm to us.
