Will your child wear a hat?

Dec 7 • Featured, Uncategorized • 838 Views • 3 Comments on Will your child wear a hat?

Every winter we have the same battle in our house, which is basically me trying to persuade No 1 Son to wear a hat.

'It's itchy,' he whines. 'It makes my head hot.' He's said this about at least 25 hats, whether they're wool or not, fleece, cashmere. When he was a baby and toddler he used to pull them off, and now he simply refuses to put them on at all. I've told him he loses most of his heat through his head but it makes no difference.

I'd love to see him in one of these hats from Gap (and right now you can get a whopping 10.5% back on full-priced purchases to save for your kids when you shop through KidStart – click here for more info):

      Aren't they fab? 

 and isn't this adorable?    

     So cute!  So, how do you persuade your child to wear a hat? I'd love to know!

    My daughter won’t. She says it will ruin her hair. Can’t think where she has got that from *takes out comb from back pocket*

    Harvey wears many, many hats. He has a vast collection – and loves them all. Mainly woolly or baseball type. He bought one on our first trip to London with manky fur on it. But – he is still wearing his shorts to school. He won’t put long trousers on – and I feel I should leave it up to him – despite snide remarks from teachers. Not that I see them that often – full time working lone parents don’t get much contact with teachers. I have just found out, today, that the shorts thing is for a bet though. A bet! He’s 9 – the little sod! 🙂

    The only way my youngest will wear a hat is if he chooses it for himself – in fact that goes the same for most of his clothes as he is only 3!
