Do you let your child pick out what clothes they are wearing every day or do you choose, and your child just goes along with your choice?
My children get to pick themselves, and I always seem to be washing and ironing the same clothes. My girls have loads of clothes, but they mainly stick to the same few, so the other clothes are not really worn too often. Robert has less clothes, and he knows what he likes, and that's all he'll wear. Jack is still too young, but he will get to pick when he's old enough.

we take turns with Nathan choosing otherwise he would wear the same thing everyday! :lol:

we do encourage him to pick at least one thing to wear everyday - it could be his underpants, socks, vest, t-shirt, cardigan or trousers - because i think it's important that he takes an interest in his appearance... :D he's doing well on his co-ordinating skills so far... :lol:

Dressing my 5 year old son has become a nightmare!! he wont choose his own clothes and if i choose them he says he hates what ive picked, i can't win. Hes fussy about how his socks are put on, sometimes it seems he has slight OCD when it comes to clothes. Hope its just a fase hes going through.

Ryan is 13 so he sorts himself out.

Adam and Thomas can sort themselves out but if we are going out then i steer them towards what i want them to wear. They still choose to wear the same clothes too which can be a nightmare if one isn't ironed :roll:

I normally give Paige a choice of 2/3 outfits and she will choose from there. On a weekend tho she has been known to get her clothes and its quite funny what she comes down in :lol:

The older three yes, obviously! (Can just see Elijah's face as I tell her to wear 'that' :lol:)
Jaidyn chooses at the weekends, but she's pretty easy going, rummages around for a top and then just picks whatever happens to be on the top of her trouser/skirt drawer! Takes all of 2 minutes :lol:
Weekdays she has the choice of her nursery T-shirt or sweatshirt and she's usually too engrossed in the TV to want to choose trousers!

Oscar likes to wear his trousers on his head, with one of my bras hanging from his arm, (worn like a hand bag), my tights/stockings worn over each arm, with his Dad's massive trainers on his feet. Does that count? :lol:

Do you let him take his 'handbag' out when you's go shopping?

my 9 yr old has a thing with socks too, he hates the sewn line across the toe so will often wear them inside out, and also hates any bobbley bits on his socks he drives me mad as it takes him longer to put socks on then it does to put on his other clothes!
