Take them another time?

DH is taking DC (8) to watch a footie match this Sat. It's so lovely of him to plan these trips and it's great bonding time. It's usually an 5 hour trip out with getting there and back as well.

But now we have this cold snap. It's forecast -3 where we are. They'll be sat for ages in the cold.

I've suggested he move his tickets to another date if he can. I don't think it'll be much fun for the kids after a while and they went a few weeks ago anyway.

Also training on Sun morning outside for another 3 hours.

At age 8 I’d just ask my child what they wanted to do. If they’re keen to go, it‘s not 5 hours of sitting outside and they can get hot drinks etc…

What does your son want to do?

I wouldn't want to be sat out in the cold but if they're wrapped up it probably won't be too bad.

Send extra clothes and a flask of hot chocolate. A small towel to sit on, and keep your bum warm, is good too.

Towel is a great idea. They could wear their football skins underneath.
