Getting Georgia dressed used to be fun. Then, she turned three and it all went down hill. Every morning she would scream, I would yell, she would cry. Vicious cycle.
Then, my mom told me I need to give her choices. So I tried it. And, it worked!
Georgia has school on Tue, Wed, Thur so on Monday I pick out 5 outfits for the week (she knows she doesn't have a choice on Sundays and is OK with that). Each school morning she gets to pick one outfit from the 5 I have selected. Then, we have a few extras for various other times in the week. Since, if we hang out at home or Home Depot all week...I honestly don't care what she wears.
So, it's a win win. She gets to pick out all her own clothes even though all the outfits have been pre selected by me. She gets to feel independent and I have a child that matches in public. And, as an added bonus when we're around the house or running errands she gets to look like a crazy.
Now, we have a happy camper again and Jonathan and I no longer dread getting her dressed! Give it a try!
