A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how easy it is to say no and how hard it is to say yes as a parent. The thing is my kids have the exact same default. Saturday we are sitting around the house and Grandma mentions this discovery park. "Do you want to go?". " no, absolutely not!". Thus begins a twenty minute battle to wrangle resistant kids into the car. They grumbled the entire way there. Then they got out of the car and we lost them for two hours. They were running all over the place having a blast! In the end we had to bribe them with ice cream cones to get them to leave. Maybe negative response are just genetic!
