Meredity O’Brien over at the Boston Herald Boston Mommy Blog has a great post here on two awesome topics. One where she references an article in New York Magazine (which I need to read in its entirety) entitled “The Bad Mommy Brigade” and another where she references a RedBook article about telling children no. Both topics are of interest. First off – don’t judge – yourself or others – and yes, it’s OK to tell your kids NO, without adding and saying “no thank you” or anything else. No is sufficient 99% of the time.
