Are Clothing Arguments Wearing You Out?
"But Mom, I don't want to wear that!" It's the dreaded wardrobe discussion. For some, it might happen once in a blue moon, but other not-so-lucky parents might find themselves in engaged in the clothing power struggle on a daily basis. Whether your child is 2 or 12, there is always the possibility for discourse over those duds. Of course, the difficulties you encounter might depend on your child's age range.While a mother of a two-year-old may struggle getting any clothing on, a parent of a tween might be in conflict over what is appropriate and what is not. The key to any clothing conflict is patience. For younger children who want to express their independence and pick out their clothing, limit their choices. Set out a few options and let your child pick from there. It's the perfect compromise where you both win. If your child picks out an outfit that doesn't match, just go with it - unless it's unseasonal and could be hazardous to his or her health.
