“My son will not take No for an answer, whenever he wants something, he keeps whining about it and I get afraid to say No, because if I do, he will cry till my No changes to a reluctant Yes”.
This is an unhealthy trend because if a child can easily ‘twist your arm’ and get away with anything and everything; he is being disfigured mentally and morally. Such a child will grow up to an adult, ill-prepared to live in a real society where everything doesn’t go as wished. Training kids to thrive in our permissive world that scorns at self-control and lauds self-gratification, is a challenge, but with many Success Stories (Awake Magazine).
‘When you say no, be decisive. Your child is not your equal. So there is no need to argue with him as though you need him to approve your No.
Helpful Tip: Take a moment, reason with the child.
Help him see that it is, because it is the right thing…
not just because you have ‘said so’.
