No: Why Kids—of All Ages—Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It

David Walsh
Cat. No.

Best-selling author, psychologist, and nationally known parenting expert Dr. David Walsh tackles a tough subject in this book on how parents can say "no" to their kids and why they should. No is not just a one-word answer it’s a parenting strategy.  By saying No, when you need to, you help your children develop skills such as self-reliance, self-discipline, respect, integrity and a host of other crucial character traits they need to be successful. No offers the lively voice, warm wisdom, science made simple and breadth of knowledge readers expect from Dr. Walsh.  Most importantly No gives parents real, effective strategies to help children bloom and grow into successful adults.

What people are saying about No

“Dave Walsh is the kind of guy you wish lived down the block (or, perhaps, down the hall), so you could have ready access to his wise, compassionate advice.  Having this book by your bedside is a close second.  His clear, thoughtful, real-world suggestions for how parents can best set loving limits will forever change the way you think about discipline and will make a significant, positive difference in your family’s quality of life.” 

- Ann Pleshette Murphy, Good Morning America’s parenting expert and author of The 7 Stages of Motherhood: Loving Your Life Without Losing Your Mind
“A comprehensive guide, it is not just about how to say No, but gives sound, practical advice that will help parents raise considerate, motivated children who will succeed in school, jobs, and life.  The chapter on self-esteem alone is worth the price of the book.  No will help today’s parents avoid raising the next Generation Me.”
