I don’t think there is anything more frustrating in life than waking your child up in the morning, trying to get her to dress in a hurry in order to get her to school on time… and then being told: “I don’t like that outfit!” This is not a debate to be had at 7.30 in the morning. Are your kids that picky?
One of the main areas of debate is the refusal of jeans and trousers. Have these 5-year-olds never heard about the feminist movement and how hard our female ancestors picketed not to have to wear skirts? We are coming full circle! Though I am morally opposed, I do often give in, so there are a lot of little warm winter tights being paired up with dresses and skirts over here in my flat in Paris.
