People are calling the new science on raising kids “parenting without saying no.”
According to my expert on the subject (my wife), we shouldn’t ever tell our toddler “no,” “don’t” or “stop.”
Even when she’s headed for the wall with a purple crayon. Or waltzing into Dad’s office unattended while his laptop is open.
It’s better to redirect her creative urges away from the wall to a blank piece of paper.
Or, better yet, parents should be proactive to ensure there isn’t a reason to use the word “no.”
Sometimes this can be as easy as hiding the TV remote (before she does). Or making sure an easily breakable pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses are out of reach.
By doing it this way, the word “no” becomes more effective when you actually need it.
And sometimes telling a toddler “no” just produces more of the same behavior.
Even telling adults they can’t have something seems to increase their demand.
When Americans fear more stringent gun restrictions, gun sales go up.
When you warn people not to hoard toilet paper, the shelves at the grocery store will be empty.
In the same vein, politicians and bankers are warning us about cryptos.
And you know what this means…
Bitcoin is going to $100,000!
