I have two sons that are ages 6&4. My six year old has been always been more clingy and picky than his brother but now it has gone overboard and I fell like I have done something to create this monster. At age three he decided he no longer wanted to wear jeans or pants with buttons, so we started buying track pants, elastic waits pants etc..
This year I have bought 3 different pairs of pants from three different stores and none of them have been acceptable. They were to long or just didn't "feel right". He is also this way with socks. His socks must be thin and short or he will not wear them. We signed him up for soccer early fall and he decided at the last minute that he was not going to play. I have now signed him up for Cub Scouts , as per his request, and he is attempting to back out of it. He is a very bright child and is at the top of first grade in both reading and math. He left Kindergarten reading on a 2nd grade level. I feel like I have done something to create this monster and I am literally at my wits end with him.
Did I mention the whining is driving me up a wall also?
Any advice would be appreciated :)
