Does your child accept No for an answer? Is your child ready to attend a birthday party?

Accepting “No” for an answer can be challenging. No one likes to be told they cannot do as they wish, yet we all have to learn. When children are told no, then after a few pleas are told yes they believe all adults will give in. Frustrating situations may occur when a child believes NO will become YES. The party guest may feel offended and become angry after repeatedly being told no, while the adult may consider the child rude. The lack of understanding – no means no- can catch both the guest and adult off guard.                                                balloons_edited-1

 

Some parents use the term “maybe” if they think they may change their mind and reserve “no” for times they definitely mean no. Remember maybe means possibly or it could or could not happen. If maybe always becomes yes then your child will not understand “maybe”!
