Kids and Clothing: Win the Wardrobe Wars

What to wear? For many families, this simple question is a daily flash-point for conflict on school mornings.

A budding fashionista throws a tantrum if a given outfit doesn’t meet her standards, while another child insists on wearing one favorite shirt day after day–laundered or not. Younger children resist getting dressed at all, delaying the whole family’s departure–and everyone’s mood descends to the basement before the day has even begun.

Win the wardrobe wars! Try these ideas to get ’em up, dressed and off to school on time.
