"This age is full of quirks" is right. I didn't wear shorts the summer I was twelve or thirteen or something and I sweltered. I probably looked ridiculous, too, but I was self-conscious and that's all there was to it. I'd say no complaining about being hot allowed unless you're going to put on cooler clothes, but forcing children that age to wear things they don't want to wear is pointless. It's also kind of an undignified way for a parent to behave, once they get to this age. It's time to let go of this kind of thing, and save boundaries for important things.

FWIW I also *never* liked slacks other than jeans. From being a little kid I hated any kind of trousers other than denim. I am still extremely uncomfortable in any kind of pants other than yoga pants, jeans, or capris.

(BTW for some of us 7 is indeed fat, and for some of us 10 is slim. Everyone is different.)

I think this issue has been discussed to completion. This thread is going to be closed due to administrative review.
