Brief Answer: You seem to have a naughty kid. Detailed Answer: Hello dear, Thanks for posting your query. Your daughter is too young to understand the social taboos and the necessity of wearing clothes, you just need to be patient with her and let her experience cold a little bit, then explain to her how the clothes will keep her warm. Do not impose social norms on little children, but explain to her the scientific reason behind doing something, children understand logical answers better. demonstrate to her how clothes can keep her warm, then she will not refuse to wear. Even after this if she refuses, you might need to see a child psychiatrist/psychologist for behavior therapy. It is that age in her life when she is trying to figure out the world around her, some kids are generally more naughty, and that means they are more intelligent. Hope this answers your query. Please feel free to write back if you need any clarifications. Regards.
