I have 2 siblings that started with me a couple months ago. They never seem to want to keep their sox on and the parents never bring them with sox on. (or shoes!) Now that it is getting VERY cold, it would be nice if they had sox on. The boy will be 2 in Jan and I am trying to teach him to keep his sox on. The dad brings him and says "He WOULDN'T LET ME" put his sox on. (wow, that's scary!) and the girl, who is 3.5 arrives with no sox, but at least she has some shoes on, altho they aren't warm shoes. I had to ask them to put some other shoes on because they were bringing her in "jelly" sandals because "she wanted to wear there". When the grass i all dewy outside, that doesn't really work. So, I am trying to teach the girl how to put her sox on because I am spending WAY too much dealing with putting their sox on all day.
I tried teaching the 3.5 year old how to put them on this morn, but she refused to even touch them. When we go anywhere, the 2 year old is n the back of the van and off go the shoes and sox, or just sox. How do I keep them on them? I know, I know, DUCT TAPE! The parents do not want to deal with anything and just bring them in the morning without their jackets on, etc., and they eat on the way in the car and they are covered in food and it ends up in my house. I feel like giving them the boot, but it is good $$. What to do???
