I need major advice! My daughter is almost five and when she turned four every morning I picked out 3 outfits and she chose one. Now it has gotten to the point where she almost never chooses one I pick even after I ask her if she would like to wear a dress, pants etc. she will generally whine and carry on for nearly 40 minutes. I have tried different approaches and they all only work sometimes. If I walk away she flips out and wants me to sit there and watch her pick an outfit. It seems to cause her a lot of anxiety doing it. She also went through a phase where she changed her socks over and over until they are just on the exact way she wants.
I'm not sure what to do as I have tried different ways to make this easier but it only seems to be worse. She changes multiple times a day sometimes.
