In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I was inspired this week to talk to you about saying yes more often. As parents, we are programmed to say no automatically, but we need to find ways to say yes. Our kids already get messages that they “can’t” more than anything else, so they need more yeses, more positives in their day-to-day lives. There are other good reasons to start saying yes more often, too. When everything is no, kids stop asking. Saying no also limits discussion and building and practicing problem-solving skills. Automatic no's often create power struggles, which no one wants. And, lastly, our kids need to feel like they have some control in their lives, and finding ways to say yes to them helps with that. I explain that and how to say yes more without "giving in" in this episode. Enjoy!
