Everyday provides opportunities to teach children major life lessons, but too often adults are caught up in the moment. For example, when a child says “No” to a parent, it is an opportunity. Adults very often have a tough time saying "No" to their bosses, spouses, church, parents, friends, etc. Take this opportunity to tell the child that you are proud of their willingness to say "No," then, explain why it is important to follow your directions. Spend some time determining what you want children to learn about life and what kind of situation are a good time to teach these lessons.
