I recently visited with my 82 year old grandmother. She and my grandfather raised 4 absolutely wonderful, productive citizens of society. There were other people around, and one of her great grandchildren was "acting up" to say the least. (Not my child!) His parent was trying to redirect him, and my grandma said she didn't understand why he was doing that. She said he should just tell the child, "NO!" She said the child will then decide what he/she wants to do instead. She then proceeded to say that it is easier to teach a child NOT to do something that it is to teach them to do something. We had a little debate (respectful of course, because that is my grandmother) and she wouldn't budge. When I got home I thought about it. Maybe she's right. What do y'all think?
