Son refuses to put on shoes for going outside?

If a child is refusing to put on shoes to go outside, there could be a number of reasons why. It could be that the child is feeling tired or uncomfortable in the shoes, or they may be experiencing some form of sensory issue with the shoes. It could also be that the child is resisting the idea of going outside or engaging in the activity that is planned. To address the issue, it may be helpful to try to understand the child’s perspective and address any underlying concerns or issues. Additionally, providing positive reinforcement or incentives for putting on shoes, such as praising the child or offering a reward for cooperation, may also be effective in encouraging the child to comply.
