7 year old girl refuses to get herself dressed!
I'm at my wits end with my 7 year olds refusal to get dressed in the morning. Every morning I tell her that I am going to get myself ready and make her lunch and that I need her to get herself dressed. She won't do it. She says she needs "help". Basically she wants me to sit there while she takes 30 min deciding on an outfit (note - she wears a uniform, so she is just choosing from various navy blue items). I refuse to "help" her and tell her she is a big girl and can do it herself. She won't do it. I go to pack her lunch/dress myself and come back 20 min later and she's still not dressed. I end up screaming every morning until she finally does it. She cries. I feel like an ass. Am I choosing the wrong battle? Maybe I should just help???
