The Sue Atkins Weekly Parenting Question
Posted by: Sue Atkins
Every week I post a question for you to ponder….
This week it’s about “Saying “no”:)
· What would saying “no” to my children give me? (e.g .control, confidence, more time, less stress?)
· What would saying “no” give my children? (e.g. firm, fair and consistent boundaries, self control?)
· What will it teach them? (e.g. that school, life and society at large all have rules, how to behave in diffferent situations appropriately?)
Take some time this week to reflect on saying “no” to your children calmly, consciously and kindly and notice what you learn and discover.
