My 5.5yo is making me nuts when we try to leave the house. If it's first thing in the morning, he's pretty cool about getting dressed and leaving. But if I have to run to the store, and he's been naked or in pjs or in underwear, it's such an ordeal to get clothes on him that I often just skip it. The biggest problem is needing groceries. I just need some mozzarella cheese for dinner tonight. The store is 3 minutes away. We will be there and back in under 10 minutes. Please, please, please, just get dressed!!!!!!!

Set the timer and have a consequence if he is not ready when it goes off. For my DS, that would be no Wii time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Sounds like my DS2. Took me forever to get him to get dressed this morning. What got him dressed? "Jimmy, I am on the phone with the school nurse and you sister threw up on the bus and we have to go get her at school".
