I need some advice. Last month I took The Boy and The Girl to have their eyes tested. It turned out they both needed glasses. I bought two pairs and both kids were excited about them. The Girl is still excited about them but The Boy "hates them" and is refusing to wear them. He told me he won't wear them to school. (Oh, yes you will!) School starts in a few weeks and I feel bad for the kid! He is starting grade 5 and it must be hard to go back to school with glasses that you got during the summer. He has never showed such defiance before. He is usually very agreeable!
So these are the facts.
- He hates them.
- He will wear them.
The only thing I can think of to make this a little easier is let him start wearing them a couple weeks after school starts when it won't be such a big deal. I really have no other ideas. I would love to hear your advice. Any suggestions?
