My 2 1/4 year old son has an aversion to anything on his feet. Last winter, he would only wear 1 certain pair of shoes. Since about May, he has either worn a certain pair of sandals or nothing.
We live in the Northeast and he HAS to start wearing covered toe shoes very soon. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get him to keep anything on. He refuses by screaming and thrashing to wear socks to bed or socks & shoes outdoors. For instance, since it's cold at night, we've been putting socks on his feet. He will cry and struggle to take the socks off and the tears will only stop when his feet are bare again.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to entice him to wear shoes? I'm not even asking him to try 2 different pairs of shoes, just 1 pair.
I never in a million years would have thought that a kid would act like this over shoes! Thanks for any suggestions!
