Here are some tips to stop saying no all the time to your children.
Remember, changing your language and tone can make a difference in how you communicate with your children and how they respond.
The next time your child asks you a question, instead of automatically saying no, think about how you can reframe their question and rephrase your response.
For example, if your child asks “Can I have a cookie?” Instead of immediately saying “No,” say “Yes, you can have that cookie, but first, we are going to have dinner. Lets set the cookie aside for later.”
When you project warmth in how you communicate with your children, they hear warmth.
When you change your communication, you change the tone, which makes kids listen better and makes you feel better as a parent!
Remember, if you can project a more positive outlook, you can improve communication with your children and avoid feeling like all you do, all day, is say no.
