So, my kids and their clothes. I'm not that picky about what my kids wear. I let them pick what they wear. I think if it's something that you don't really want them to wear, like it's a nice shirt or you don't want them to wear to school 'cause it's gonna get dirty, then you don't offer them that. You hide it, right? So, there's none argument every morning. So, make sure what the clothes that are available to them are the ones that they're allowed to wear. And, then, I just sort them whatever they want. Who cares. Because I wouldn't start - that's not a battle I'll choose to fight. If it is a special occasion, like you have a wedding coming up, my suggestion would b,e even if they're like 3 years old, to take them with you to see the dress, incorporate their opinion in it, let them try it on, take pictures 'cause if you bring out the big party dress to another party and they don't wanna wear it, it's a very stressful time. So, that's what I do with my kids and their clothes. Basically, I let them choose what they wanna wear.
