    My daughter would be too stubborn to put on her winter coat if she got cold. She is at that age where style is more important than warmth.

    Eventually he worked out that he was cold & needed to rug up.

    It saved my sanity to just let it go.
    My daughter is the same way, if I don't make her wear winter clothes she would never wear them. I'm glad your son wised up, hopefully my daughter will too.

    I wouldn't force mine to wear something that made them feel uncomfortable. Too many risks- body issues, etc.

    I do get them to put a long-sleeve top and pant in their bag so they can change if cold.
    Short of that, being cold won't kill them.

    When it gets cold here though I do pack away their summer stuff- shoes included. So they don't really have much choice.

    I would let her wear what she wanted. If she gets cold that's her issue.
    Or I would take her shopping and let her pick a jacket she likes. If she is wearing the clothes she should like them.

    I let my daughter pick what she wears under her outerwear. I'm all for her making her own style choices, but I step in when it comes to dressing for the weather.

    I feel like it wouldn't be responsible of me to just let her go around cold and under dressed. And she only likes really thin and short jackets that aren't nearly warm enough.

    I would just let her wear what she wants. Not worth the battle.
    My DS wore short all through winter last year in Melbourne - he just doesn't seem to feel the cold.

    With how cold it was this morning I would say it was well worth it. When it comes to dressing for the weather I'm willing to put my foot down.

    But that what you feel. If she feels she doesn't need the jacket why make it an issue?
    How old is your daughter and how cold is it?

    Then if she gets cold or even gets a cold she will learn to put on warmer clothes.
    What about something under her school clothes? Like a t-shirt or skivvy. My son (7) often wears t-shirts and shorts during Winter (and it gets quite cold here in Victoria). He likes being cold apparently 😂. I make sure i bring a coat and pants just in case he does feel cold.
