A couple years ago, I lamented to my mom that I felt like I was always saying “No!” to my children. At the time they were six years old and younger. There were, and still are, many things they wished to do that require redirection. She listened quietly on the other end of the line as I gave her example after example. I might’ve been exasperated that day or at that moment. It happens often enough.
She understood. She had walked this path decades ago and remembered it well.
“Say yes as often as you can,” she said.
