Mumma, can I have an ice cream today? No!
Mumma, I want to climb up on that swing. No, baby it’s too high.
Mumma, I will cut this paper on my own. No, Hiya… you won’t be able to!
Mumma, I want to… No!
Mumma…I. Hiya! No!

Is this a common scene in your home? You are not alone. This is a usual scene at my home too. In fact, as parents, I’m sure most of us use the word, ‘No’ more than any other in our vocabulary. But what else do we do to keep a tab on our little devils?! We say ‘No’ to protect them against so many dangers that they don’t even know about or in many cases willfully ignore!
