    I'm new to this site but have been reading a fair few threads and this seems ridiculous. All OP wants is validation that forcing her daughter to do something against her will is the right decision. I feel that the overwhelming response has been to let her daughter make her own mistakes and learn from them (if at all, she might not actually feel the cold and OP might realise we're all different).
    OP I hope you take on board the advice given and relax, good luck.

    I will echo what most peopleare saying - don't force her to wear the coat.

    I have a friend who did not feel the cold. I would be in long pants, shirt, jumper and jacket and still be freezing and she was in shorts and maybe a jumper.

    She wore shorts all year round. a shirt most of the time. And I lived in a fairly cold place.

    OP buying the new coat for her birthday won't work because as you have said it must be "warm enough". So again you are controlling the situation. And again, she doesn't feel the cold like you do.
    Warm enough to you is too warm for her!

    I giggle at this post because it makes me think of a tv ad that was on once where the kid says "Why do I have to wear a jacket when my mother feels cold"....

    Mine come out with the strangest clothes when it is 5 degrees outside some days. If they insist on not wearing a jumper to school I usually make them pack it in their school bag 'just in case".... I have one son who was so annoying with dressing in winter, so I even used to send a note to school with him to say "Yes he has a jumper and coat but refuses to wear it, jumper is in the bag" But mainly so I dont look like a negligent parent.
