Hi, My son who is almost 5 now is crazy about mobile games.. He is fond of you tube videos and playing games on it... I understand he needs entertainment but he is on it for hours... If we don't give it he starts crabbing... Now since a weeks time I am not showing my smart phone saying it's sold out... Is this right attitude towards my child, I m lying to him end of the day

hi Vaibhav! I appreciate your concerns. 'No' as an answer is not acceptable to us adults as well, think about a 4 year old , who's been denied his demands. may be as a parent we have a valid point and we feel its only for the betterment of the child but a child cant see the logic behind this. hence it becomes very essential to avoid saying a 'Big No' to all his demands. also if u must then give him options , and let him choose one. by doing so child will still feel powerful as again his decision was final. thirdly if we have to deny his demand then politely make him sit and explain the reason and make sure the word No doesn't appear in conversation . last but not the least, if we will avoid saying No to him , he will imitate us and would avoid refusing our requests and saying 'NO'. as please remember 'yes' parents make 'yes' children. tkcare!
