    I know I personally feel like an all no-ing parent many days, especially when it comes to requests for some new video game that their friends have but the game itself is wildly inappropriate for children.

    I am the no-ing queen smile this made me think about today I took my daughter to get fast food, and then she asked for special chips from the store and I said no. I explained to her I want to buy her everything she asked for but I have to say no sometime. For her health and the health of our financials

    Some days I do and other days I don't seem to be saying no to the same questions over and over. I find that days that we don't turn on the TV at all, my daughter is not as fussy and whines less. Once she gives up on asking me about the TV, she'll play with her toys and be as happy as can be. I think "sticking to your guns" is the trick that I use the most. It's not a new one, but it is effective.
