There must be cave paint­ings that de­pict pre­his­toric par­ents try­ing to get their kid to wear a vest.

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

cold chil­dren must have been born in a barn.

This time of year I wear pretty much all the cloth­ing I own at once, all the time.

But not the kids. They roam around the house and gar­den sleeve­less and in bare feet. If we could har­ness the body heat rush­ing out of their soles we would have some pretty snazzy un­der­floor heat­ing.

I plead with them to put on more lay­ers but get met with scorn. Their ex­trem­i­ties feel freez­ing yet they claim to suf­fer no ill ef­fect; they are prob­a­bly numb.

What is it with chil­dren re­fus­ing their par­ents’ com­mands to put on warm things? As we leave the house they have to be prac­ti­cally stron­garmed into a jacket, let alone a beanie. Most of my friends have the same prob­lem.
