“I was getting my daughter (5) ready for school yesterday and she insisted on wearing a sweater with no shirt under it and full-length pants. I told her it was going to be hot (80 degrees and sunny) and she plays outside with little shade all morning, but nothing swayed her, so I let her wear it to school.”
“She ended up getting slightly overheated, and they changed her into a loaner dress. The kids know the loaner clothes are usually for accidents, so her friends were asking if she had an accident, and one boy teased her about it. She was pretty embarrassed by the time I picked her up.”
My husband is mad that I let her wear the sweater because she could’ve gotten heat stroke and was teased due to the results of her outfit choices, but now she knows to dress appropriately for the weather.
