Hi guys/girls, with winter fast approaching, I am needing tips/advice on how I can get my 7yr old girl to wear her jacket. During the summer, I will let her not wear one but winters here can get really, really cold, and by that I mean, temperatures in the minuses so I think it's safer if she has her jacket on and zipped.

Caliyn Campbell children are totally unpredictable. what might work with them one day might not work on rest of the days. depends on so many factors such as their mood, what they are busy doing at that very moment, are they hungry, are they sleepy or are they tired!???so basically it's a hit and trial method.. keep trying and see what works well with yr girl. is it praise, a hug, some attention or spending time with u, that she expecting from u.. please avoid scolding her or giving consequences so quickly. make her sit down, have an eye contact, hug her so as to connect well and finally in polite words say what u want her to do.. if she doenst agree listen to why she is doing so. find a middle path and reach a consensus.. by straightaway jumping to consequences we are making them feel powerless which they are likely to retaliate sooner or later . be patient and deal with her with love.. hope this helps!

That didn't work :(. I said to her "please zip up your jacket as its pouring rain" she ignored me so I said "you'll get a treat if you zip up" but she got cheeky so I zipped it myself, took her hand and told her she's grounded for a week but that made her cry.

u can give her a smiley sticker or her fav cartoon character 's sticker on listening to u. also praise her and hug her when she listens to u.. or have a deal ,if she follows what u say, she would get her fav dish.. hope this works!!

hi Caliyn Campbell! it's seems u r having a hard time making her wear one. here are some handy tips which might work.. try buying her fav color jacket or one with her fav character on it. or u could try buying same piece in bigger size for yourself and tell her it's a deal that u both will wear it together. if this also doesn't seem to work u could ask her to decorate her jacket with glitter and stones and praise her for her hard work. i am sure she won't mind flaunt her hard work by wearing it. or u could bring her agemates home and show her how all of them are wearing theirs so she she might imitate. hope these tips work for u! do keep us in the loop. have a wonderful day!
