When You Need To Say 'No'
Even though it is important to allow your child to try new things on their own, you need to forbid things which may be a hazard and are a definite no-no. Do not leave them alone in places like the kitchen and the bathroom, where there are numerous chances of their hurting themselves. When forbidding something, do not just issue a flat ‘No’. Explain to them why doing that particular thing could harm them.
