Teaching our children how to say no with confidence is a difficult thing as many of us say yes all the time to avoid conflict, whether at work or amongst friends.
But the boy in this funny story clearly had no such qualms, take a look:
One day a 12-year-old boy was walking down the street when a car pulled up beside him and the driver lowered his window. “I’ll give you a large bag of M&Ms if you get in the car," said the driver.
“No way! Get lost!” replied the boy.
“How about a bag of M&Ms and 10 dollars?” the driver asked.
“I said no way,” replied the boy again.
“What about a bag of M&Ms and 50 dollars?” asked the driver.
“No, I’m not getting in the car,” answered the boy.
“Okay, I’ll give you a bag of M&Ms and 100 dollars,” the driver offered.
“No!” replied the boy firmly.
“What will it take to get you in the car?” asked the driver.The boy replied:
“Listen, Dad, you bought the Volvo… You live with it! I'm not getting in that ugly car!”
