What ever happened to the Word No? A Mother’s Response and Rant

I recently came across an article about teenagers who want expensive items and suggestions on how to deal with their demands.

How about “JUST SAY NO!”.

Since when is  “No” a taboo word? If you are the guardian and the child is not contributing to the household and still a minor, why is there a question?

Whatever happened to the old ” When you have your own money you can buy whatever you want” ?

Parents who allow their children to rule them, who constantly say “yes” and give in to all their children’s demands are doing a disservice.

Children need boundaries, structure and guidance. They don’t have the facilities to make choices and determine what is best.

Isn’t that what parenting is all about?

HELLO!!! Try saying NO!

Just No. No explanation needed.
