Sweet Peas’ favorite word – sometimes – is NO! When asked to do something or go somewhere or any other request can result in a firm “no!” if the mood fits. This is very common for the toddler age but common or not – it gets really ignoring!

Say “no” back. This goes back to Kevin Leman’s book Have a New Kid by Friday: How to Change Your Child’s Attitude, Behavior & Character in 5 Days. This book talks specifically about how to deal with this typical child behavior. Simply return the child’s request of you with no’s as well. For more ideas, check out the book.
