    Sometimes they are following the examples set by adults.  Most times they cannot be bothered by the responsibility of ensuring that they are covered by one more garment. It is so much easier to not wear it.

    I'm not sure. I have a 2 year old boy that won't go anywhere without a coat and hat on. When he knows we're going outside, he asks for them. He used to love playing with my father-in-law dog, throwing rocks for her to fetch. Well, he loves playing outside, period. He knows that without the proper clothes on, he will have to stay in.
    Maybe when they get older they realize that they can't move very well depending on how heavy their coat is and that's what make them opt against it. I know I would, lol
    Hope that helps, wink

    Excellent question.  Many years ago we lived in North Dakota for a short time.  The weather was routinely below zero and I had one daughter that I had to remind to wear a coat.  Explaining the seriousness of below zero weather did not seem to sink in.

    She's 26 now and still rarely wears a coat.

    Because staying warm is not an important detail to them; they often live in the moment ablivious to the consequence of not wearing a coat in the winter (a cold)!

    They do it to annoy adults. If it is hot outside, they will wear a coat or sweater on the hottest day. That is their way of taking charge of their lives and getting pleasure out of seeing adults cringe at the sight of their in appropriate attire. The crazy thing about this is, they have all they need in their room growing too small as we speak. Growing too small from none use. Good question.
