5. "Yes"
It's so easy to say "no" that sometimes it becomes our default response. It's certainly less effort, but it's understandably frustrating for a young child to hear it all day long.

Instead of the knee-jerk "no," consider the request. Is it reasonable? You don't have to commit to a full-on "Yes Day," but agreeing to one more book or a cookie after dinner helps you build some capital for when you do have to say "no."
