  1. Only use “No” when necessary

Some parents get into the habit of answering “no” before they have even considered the question asked or evaluated the scenario they are prohibiting.

The word “no” is negative, thus putting a negative connotation on the subject at hand, try to rephrase your response so it comes across positive when appropriate.

Parents warns of the effects of saying that forbidden word too often:

If you’re always saying, ‘No, no, no,’ your child will tune out the no and won’t understand your priorities,” says Pearson, author of The Discipline Miracle (AMACOM). “Plus you can’t possibly follow through on all of the nos.'” Define what’s important to you, set limits accordingly, and follow through with appropriate consequences.”
