A: Dear Carriecantu1:
I would not be worried about a three year old who dresses himself backwards. If everything he wears is always backwards, he must know it and get some sort of zing out of it--even if he can't really tell you why. I would let it go. The more you make a fuss over it, the more of an issue it will be.
Your inquiry suggests that everything else seems to be going in the right direction with this little guy. If this is the case, I'd relax about the backwards duds. He won't be wearing stuff backwards on Prom Night.
