Re: Teaching Responsibility for decisions

I would keep it simple and as natural as possible.  If she actually has a cardigan at school, let her find it ( at school) and put in on at school. If she ends up wearing the same one everyday- so what? If she doesn't care, why should you?  She is only 7, not 14. She will care one day, and it will be of her own choice and realization compared to your adult imposed one. That has much better impact in the end, and in the long term.  Her learning, is not a race, it's a journey. Work with her.  If the school punishes, she doesn't need it twice, she needs your support.
