My daughter, who will be 5 in January has a very difficult time getting dressed. She wants to pick out her own clothes but sometimes take 30-45 minutes choosing what to wear. Mostly, she starts to have a melt down and says stuff like "these jeans don't feel right" or "I don't like pockets on my pants." If i suggest clothes, it's "i don't want to wear that." I am late to work like everyday because of her fits. We tried having her pick out her clothes the night before but by morning she has changed her mind. We've threatened to send her to daycare in her jammies if she can't decide but the truth is that the daycare would not like it if we did, so we have to make sure she gets dressed. I don't know what else to do. Does anyone else have this problem? Anyone have ideas on what to do? I am sooo tired of fighting with her.
