Q&A | What about a kid who won't take "no" for an answer?

Do you have a kid who struggles to take "no" for an answer? That's the question we are covering today. The truth is, somtimes we need to firm up our "no" when talking to our kids--I'm giving you a few examples of what this sounds like. I'm also giving you an example of how I use my job description.

"As your Mom, it's my job to help keep your brain and body healthy. To do that, I have to be sure you eat good food and get plenty of movement"
