By December 16, 2012

Follow me on:

Day 3Holidays are stressful enough without uncomfortable clothes, but often that's just what we want our kids to don before taking on parties and pageants and long rides to Grandma's. When you know your child has problems with new togs or scratchy fabrics or tight collars, piling that on top of all the other complications of the day is like tossing straws on the camel's back.

If you're trying to keep your child's behavior from ruining your holiday, start by thinking creatively about what constitutes a proper holiday outfit, and keeping your child's sensory sensitivities and preferences in mind. Read "Before You Dress Your Child for the Holidays" for some ideas, Then share your child's personalized holiday finest on the Readers Respond page.
