Do your LOs pick out their own clothes when getting dressed for the day?

My 3 year old sometimes does.

My son is a typical guy he'll wear anything he finds on the floor or in a drawer.
My daughter likes to dress herself, she rarely has on two shoes that match or is without her beloved straw hat with a pink flower on it:)
The baby wears what I pick out and I milk it fir all I can while she still let's ne- bring in the bows and booties!

My daughter is 5, but she's been picking out her own clothes since she was two.  Yes, she has a unique sense of style, and there have been a few times I've shaken my head.  However, when asked, there's a method to her reasoning about why two things "go together".  I figure the kids in elementary school will take care of teaching her the "proper" way to match her clothes.  She'll only have a few carefree years of being immune to other children's comments, and I want her to enjoy this freedom now even if it means I'm mildly embarrassed once in a while.

Yes, all but my 12 yr old (he is autistic and I have to pick out his clothes or he would wear non weather appropriate clothing).

I took na parenti ng class called love and logic and they taught us to give your child w choices that you can live with and let them choose between those so your giving them choices and ultimatly they are picking the outfit or juice or movie or whatever it works great with my three yr old!

 Zach doesn't care. He is happy with whatever I pick out. To him, clothes are a pain...he would rather run naked if I allowed it!

Nope, my son has no interest what so ever in picking out his clothes. And the ones in his dresser he usually tosses them around his room so I usually leave his clothes hung/folded in the laundry room

Kind of? I'll give my 3-year-old the choice between 2 pairs of pants, and then allow her to choose between 2 shirts (depending which pair of pants she picks, lol). That way she still gets to learn decision-making, and I don't send a mismatched mess off to preschool. :)

The six-year-old doesn't care, while the three-year-old will voice his opinion about my selection.

I ask my son from time to time which shirt he wants but he never gives me a preference
