I need suggestions on how to keep clothes on my toddler. He is now 2 years old, but for the last year or so he's like to be naked so I thought nothing of it. He likes to walk around in his diaper and in the summer I thought it would help cool him down. Now however, coming into Autumn, he hates wearing clothes. Every time I wrangle him into an outfit he will scamper off into another room and strip and go on with his day. I have spent entire days following him around the house to ensure he keeps his clothes on, but it is getting so tiring and stressful, especially when he starts to throw tantrums because of his foiled attempts to complete his striptease.
How should I approach this situation? Will he grow out of this stage? Is it a big deal?
Just a note, he is not overly verbally advanced. I humor the idea to 'discuss' it with him, but ideally I think I could get the point across to a table, or any inane object before my son.
