Family - How to stop your children saying 'No'













When faced with a ‘guaranteed ‘no!’’ scenario i.e.
“Ok kids, time for bed”

“Right! Homework time”

Rephrase thus:

“Right, bedtime.  Now shall I read a story or do youwant to read to yourself?
Or

“Ok homework, afterwards shall we watch t.v. or play a board-game?’

Tragically at some point it will occur to your children that when presented with two ‘fun’ options, option three is to respond “None of them!” but enjoy it while it lasts.
