There is no need to feel guilty for saying “no” to child. Children say “no”
easily and they are not ashamed of saying it over and over. “No” is a very
simple word, but saying it out loud could be very difficult for some parents.
Most parents do not like to say “no” to their child, because they believe that
this will convey their displeasure, annoyance, and anger to him or her. But the
truth is that all the parents have the right to say no to their children.
For instance, you have every right to say no to your child if he or she is
asking to stay up late, because this is actually what is best for his or her
health. Or you are actually protecting your child when you say no to his or her
demand for lots of money in order to start a risky business. Parenting is a job
that you never retire from. You will have to say no to your child for many
decades. So, try not to feel guilty about it.
It is true that if you agree to everything your child wants, you can prevent him
or her from behaving wild or unpleasant, but you should remember that it does
not make you a good parent to do something for your child under pressure.
