Any one else have this problem when you're trying to go somewhere leave the house - and you have your one child that might just "slouch" on down to the ground off the couch and not get their shoes on?
Anything I can help say or do to help her get them on? If I put them on for her she takes them right back off
Thanks

Yep, I am totally 100% with Constance on this one. Don't fight it, make her go to the car barefoot and do her shoes in the car, and I'd also make her go shoeless if she put up the fight in the car. She'd learn soon enough. Call it logical consequences.

I don't normaly fuss with my kids with shoes because they know that we ae leavin. The one thing that I did find that worked rather well was it is summertime andthis is very brief. I will just collect up the shoes and we will go to the car barefoot or not. Their is always the first door opened but hot pavement on bare feet normallywith fix the no shoes problem.

I have a cheap pair of flipflops in the back of the car when they don't want to put them on There is a rule that they don't go in to the house so they have to be removed before going inside. I figure life is to short to fight over shoes.
