We hear a lot about encouraging our kids and the power of “Yes”. But I actually think it’s really important and relevant to say “No”.

If you grow up always hearing “Yes” or having the path cleared for you, it can be very difficult when you encounter hardships in life.

I’ve spent time these past couple of weeks and months thinking about constructive ways I can say “No” to my kids. I want to have them develop some inner resourcefulness that will help them later on with their careers and just make them better human beings to be around.
