My son and his socks

My 7 year old son is so picky about his socks. I have to buy new socks all the time because he does not like the texture of them once washed. He says they are crunchy. He also hates the seams. Anyway, I of course always make him wear them and we do a scream and yell match with each other each morning about the damn socks. He has now learned to adapt. What he does now is only wears his socks inside out because he only likes the soft side. And, he rubs spits on his feet before he puts them on so that the socks are not crunchy anymore. lol. omg!

I also wear my socks inside out, that seam drives me nuts otherwise.

Just make sure to get pure cotton socks, plain coloured ones are best, if they have any shiney bits or any sown in bits them avoid them, i know how seriously annoying that stuff is

Socks!

Ok, so he wears his socks inside out! In the grand scheme of things, that's not a big deal and not worth ruining mornings, as long as he's cool with it. Remember to let him know how proud you are of him for figuring out a solution on his own (and still wearing the socks). I can see where the spitting could be gross, but maybe he would compromise with rubbing in some lotion instead? Keep looking for socks that are soft enough...hey what about dress socks that are not fuzzy on the inside? Or maybe silk type sock liners that would go under hiking socks? Good luck and hang in there!

My grandaughter spits and wets all her clothes with water, she cannot wear sock or underwear. If we try and get her to wear these things she freaks out and everybody is late for work. OMG
