When your 11 year-old suddenly cares about what he wears.
Several weeks ago, I noticed my son was wearing the same clothes day after day. I was a little confused about this because we had just gone through his closet to find things that he no longer could fit. We do a lot of hand-me-downs to the younger boys, so it is really easy to just throw them into their drawer and be done with it.
After a couple of days of him wearing the same shirts and shorts, I asked him why. He pretty much told me that he only likes a handful of the items that are in his closet! ugh, I finally decided to take him to Goodwill and I promise you, this shopping trip was not easy. “Mom, I don’t like the way these feel”, “This shirt doesn’t look right”… do you have problems like this? I never thought a boy could only like to wear just ONE type of sock (another “issue” we have)
I figured out a couple solutions to our “preteen” clothing problem. Check out my blog post here.
