    My grandchildren continue to lose their winter coats and gloves and due to the cold.

    My daughters and I keep replacing them each time since it is so cold yet they continue to lose them, What do you suggest?

    To lose something once is unfortunate, to lose the the replacement is stupid, to lose another replacement, I have to think, is this deliberate?
    It is time to stop all treats for these children until they know the value of looking after what they have, perhaps let them go cold for a while, let them know that if you have to keep buying new clothes for them, there is no money for those little extras on the table at weekends, or for pocket money, or those new toys they wanted, no money to pay for festivities at Christmas.  And stick to it.

    My kids are horrible with losing hats and gloves. I at the end of the winter season when all the hats and gloves are on sale my tons of sets of those $1 hats and gloves, just for this reason. It does not solve the problem of why do they keep losing them but at least they were a dollar and they have hat and gloves. However for my four year old, I do the trick my mom did, put them on the end of a colored string and rum that through the arm of the jacket, so when she takes of her jacket the gloves stay in the jacket.

    I don't have a suggestion for the coat issue but as for the hats I do.  Tell your grandchildren that when they take off their hats to place the hat inside the sleeve of the coat and they will always know where it is.  However if they continue to lose their coats that will still cause the problem of losing the coat and hat since they will be together.  My kids are not allow to remove their coats when they leave the house until they get to school.  When we are shopping, etc. they leave their coats on but unzip them so they do not get to warm.  Also if I am with them somewhere and they take off their coats I always take it from them and carry it myself.  Hope this helps alittle, atleast with the hats if they can keep track of their coats.
