    Default My daughter hates dressing warm

    It gets very cold where I live so in the wintertime I make my daughter dress warm. I have her wear thick, insulated snow pants, waterproof winter boots, a fleece jacket, a puffy coat, and a warm winter parka. She also wear gloves, a warm hat, a woolen scarf, and both her hoods up. She gets very upset that I make her bundle up, especially when she walks to school.

    I was just seeing if anyone had advice on dealing with the tantrums. It’s always an ordeal when she had to bundle up.

    How old is she? Is she old enough to make her own decisions?

    She is 13 years old, I think she’s old enough to make certain decisions but not when it comes to winter clothes.

    Lol. I'd agree with that. My fiancee still kinda dresses me a bit. Asks me "Are you sure you want to wear that?" Maybe try compromising with her. Make sure she still has on layers but let her get involved with what she is wearing. Maybe that will help??? My 15 year old girl is as stubborn as a bear. But sometimes they don't know what's the best for them as is the case with most teenagers.

    Who knows with these crazy kids now days???

    I'm 53 and my mom always gives me a hard time if I don't seem to be dressed warm enough. I would not dare through a fi, though.

    Seriously, maybe you can just have a sit down at a time other than the "dressing time" so to speak.

    Maybe in her comfy spot like in her room or another place she like and feels at ease. Just visit like buddy's a little bit about cold weather and clothes. Maybe a tiny bit at first.

    That's how I deal with employees that get out of bounds or when they are not being safe on the job.
    It's about 50/50 on how receptive they are. Lol

    Probably a lot like kids..

    My two cents.

    What do you mean by get her involved in what she’s wearing?

    That’s a good idea, I gave it a try. My daughter just told me that she feels uncool when she’s bundled up in snow pants plus a heavy coat and parka.

    Aren't her friends bundled up too? I'm sure their parents do the same to them.

    Most of her friends are so underdressed I don’t know how they don’t freeze.

    Geeze, Janett, your situation with your daughter seems kind of weird to me. When I was a teenager, I didn't own a coat. Or gloves. Or a scarf. Or a muffler. Or earmuffs. Or a sweater. Or a hoodie. Or boots. Not that I didn't ask for them, because it was cold as antartica,but my dad's idea of winter clothing was putting on a long-sleeved shirt over your t-shirt and shivering until your buttons fell off ....because it was cheaper. A kid not wanting to be warm....wow. Tell her she's lucky to have a mom who cares.....

    She definitely doesn’t appreciate the hundreds of dollars I spend on her winter outerwear. When I was a teenager my parents would give my older sister’s winter coats.
