My son has a terrible time giving up his shoes. He is two and a half. He tends to want to wear his old ones which are tight and full of holes. We have to fight him to try new ones. Recently, I took him to the store to pick the shoes. Thinking if he were part of the process, then he'd wear them. No he simply wouldn't agree on any and got tired of trying shoes on. In the end I was able find the same style shoe in a bigger size. He never questioned any differences when I put them on his feet a week later. My question is how do others ho about getting kid shoes and do any of face similar problems with getting young kids to wear something new?
