    Do children feel temperature differently from the way adults do?

    I have to remind my grandchildren to take their jackets when it is cold, while I dare not leave the house without mine.

    This is a good question.  Maybe.  The cold never bothered me when I was a kid.  I played in the snow for hours.  Now I cannot stand the cold.  Many older adults move south to avoid this harsh weather.  So you may be up to something here.

      I'm in the south myself and I'm now beginning to appreciate the warmth. Another sign that I am getting older. Thanks for your comment.

    Some mothers obviously think so.  I saw a woman with a heavy jacket on, carrying an infant who wore no coat at all.  It was a very cold day - 40s.

      Now something's wrong there. Most mothers swaddle their babies when it's cold. Thanks for your comment,

      Not my grandkids. They seem oblivious to the cold.

    People on FB were complaining about children with no coats or socks on freezing days. A woman had a tiny baby in the frigid weather with a tiny blanket and bare feet. I see this all the time and consider it borderline child abuse when it is below 32 degrees. I don't know the answer, but some parents seem to believe children are always warm. Maybe children are warm blooded, but my kids wore snowsuits and heavy blankets and socks and boots. They never complained. Interesting question.
