NO! – Can you say NO?
NO may be the most important word in YOUR child’s life as well as YOUR own. YOU just may not know that but as YOU age you will realize how important the word “No” is. That word may save YOUR child from having sex too young, having a baby too young, taking drugs too young, having to take a job they are overqualified for, marrying before they are ready, all kinds of negative things in life require the word, “No”.
Can you say “NO” and walk away from family and friends when it may be bad for you?
Most people and especially children cannot say “No” because it would be going against other children and people they are around.
Again, it is a learned skill to be able to say “No” when necessary.
For YOUR child it is imperative that they learn how to say “No” for their future. “No” to sex before they are ready – which means a different age for each child and even adults. No to drugs – including “pot” and anything else – these are easy to get any more in any town in America and even the world. YOUR child needs to know the consequences of sex and drugs to YOUR child. You need to know the consequences of YOUR child not being able to say “NO” when it is their best interest to protect their body and mind.
Just saying “No” to the pot and/or drugs because we are each unique and when any one of us put something into our bodies that will react differently on each of us. Some people have done recreational pot and they have no problems or addictions. Others take a pot and it is a “window” to worse drugs and become addicted and may never have a “meaningful life”. No one knows if we are a person who does not become just a recreational user or addicted. There are a lot of reasons a person becomes addicted but it can start very innocently but because the brain is not developed until in our 20s, learn to say “No”.
