Doesn't Need a Response

Big MouthImage by angel_shark via Flickr
With an older child, a certain amount of mouthiness is to be expected.

Just don't respond, or else say, "I know this is hard for you, I don't expect you to like it, but the family rule is..."

- David Walsh, PhD. No: Why Kids - of all Ages - Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It. Free Press, Toronto. 2007. pg 41

Nice Advice!

Teachers can use the same script but replace "family rule" with "class rule."
