The importance of a two-letter word
As a child, I heard people say that the biggest word in the dictionary was "if". If I were a millionare how different would my life be? If is a pretty big word. What about the word "no". This was always a word that carried it's weight. No is a defiant word which I never allowed my kids to use, or, if they answered me back using that word, they knew it meant --in modern terms, a "time-out".
Parents are always the boss, at least they should be. That's how I raised my children, and that is how I was raised.
Today I'm thinking that my little grandson loves to use the word "no" because he is aware of what it means. Learning to say "No" is a good thing, that perhaps, I can learn from my grandson. He has a little mind of his own. And, he is not afraid to express himself.
If only I could say "no" to many of the sweet things that I know I'm not supposed to have, wouldn't I'd be better off?
Today, I think the most important word in the dictionary, if people still utilize one, would be "NO." Should the word "NO" be supressed? Was Dr. Spark right after all? I wonder.
How can I correct my little grandson from saying "NO" when I have to learn to say NO, myself?
Maybe, "No" is not the biggest word in the dictionary, but it certainly carries it's weight.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
