In our house it's a nightmare.
I cannot get C dressed for love nor money. I know why she can't do it, but I simply don't know how to get her to understand that it's necessary.
All last week I bribed her with a cuddly toy of her choice (cuddly toys are her obsession) and, unsurprisingly, as the week progressed she became less and less motivated to get dressed. So that didn't work.
Previously I have tried buying bribes in the form of favourite food (NOT sweeties!!) or the Blessed Littlest Pet Shop or small cuddlies, but these too have lost their appeal. Again, no surprise there.
I have moaned at her, pleaded with her, shouted at her (feel bad about that one), turned it into a game, tried to make it a race (this works at school, but not home!) I've even tried dressing her myself as I would have when she was little, but I just ended up being kicked in the face and showered with abuse and now I'm stuck.
I tried changing her routine so she gets dressed at a different time of the morning, but she just couldn't cope with that at all.
NOTHING is working. I know that it's part PDA, part control/manipulation, part attention seeking and part being a six-year-old but HOW DO I GET HER TO COMPLY?
I'll try anything as the stress every morning is getting us both down and we are invariably late for everywhere, including school!
I will try anything. Including getting her dressed the night before
