Caitlyn (7) will not fasten up her jacket.
With wintertime fast approaching, I am needing advice on how I can get my 7yr old, Caitlyn to fasten up her jacket.
First of all, she has a jacket which is issued to get by the school so when its rainy, windy or snowy, the teachers won't allow Caitlyn or anyone at her school go outside to play until they have their school jackets on AND fastened up (zipped and buttoned right up). The reason for that is because teachers don't want kids coming into class either complaining of being cold/wet or coming into class with soaking wet uniforms.
When she is at home, I also don't allow her outside on unpleasant days until her jacket is fastened up, I usually have to do it for her though which is hard because Caitlyn wriggles/fidgets about but I ALWAYS get it fastened then explain to her that because of weather, she needs properly bundled up to protect her from the elements.
