“No” is RJ’s least favorite word… and he tries his best to convince his dad, his mom, and his teacher to turn “No” into “Maybe” or “We’ll see” or “Later” or “I’ll think about it.” Even though he doesn’t have much success, RJ keeps arguing until his teacher suggests that he try to join her classroom’s Say YES to NO Club. If RJ can learn how to accept “No” for an answer and to disagree appropriately with his teacher and parents, he can add his name to the club’s Star Board. RJ finds that lots of praise and some rewards come his way when he uses these skills the right way!
Put an end to arguing or negotiating with youngsters by teaching them how to accept “No” for an answer. Instead of wheedling or pleading, teach them how to disagree appropriately. The steps for each skill are easy to remember with the simple rhymes presented in the story.
