The Yes-No Game
Age: Two to Five
You: So pumpkin, look** at the the silly kitten...***
*The No can be about anything. What matters is you're going to turn the No itself into a game. A fun game. Just like hide and seek.
**Keep switching till she's having fun, then change subjects. Ta-da!
***It's not okay to trick them into doing the original No. Fair's fair. Distract them, then change the subject. Done properly you'll have the kid laughing and playing with you as you switch back and forth between Yes and No. Remember -- it's a GAME.
