When did "no" become a bad word? We keep noticing that nobody says it anymore. No has been replaced by that is not appropriate. Everyone wants their kids to say no to things like drugs and texting while driving, but all I ever hear is parents using too many words to say no. Have you been on an airplane lately? If the kid behind you is kickng your seat, be prepared to hear mommy saying "that is not appropriate" instead of NO or STOP! If you are terrified of using the word no, why would your kid be able to?
I want NO! to make a comeback. No is rad!
*Please add rad to the list of words that bug me.
