Teaching Children to Accept No for an Answer

Kids do say “no” a lot. They also need to learn to hear it and accept no for an answer. Children start attempting to set their own limits as soon as they hear what the word no means. At times, they may have trouble accepting limits from others, especially their parents. All of us will hear a lot of no’s during our lives. It is important to be able to accept no for an answer to avoid chronic problems.
