My 4 year old girl is frequently having meltdowns over getting dressed. Lately most mornings are an up hill battle to get her dressed. She ends up in tears and even if I start trying to get ready an hour in advance half the time we end up being late for appointments.
I've tried giving her 2 or 3 options and letting her decide but still the same result most times. Sometimes it might be that she wants to wear a summer dress when it's 16 degrees but other times it wouldn't matter what options she was given it's more of a power struggle I think.
She often gets upset and refers to whatever as not being "fashion or says things like... I like pretty things and this isn't pretty or people won't like it. (We are also regularly talking to her about what you wear not being of importance). I think this has come about from starting daycare/kindy.
