    Grandparents have had a lot more practice at it Michael.

    My grandkids stayed with us for a week last year. Every time my grandson tried to get away with something, I’d tell him, “Forget it – your Dad already tried that thirty years ago, and it didn’t work for him either.”

    And, truth be told, you tried it on your dad, and it didn’t work for you either, right, luckylouie? It as the same for me.

    Granddad has it right. Don’t give them a reason, don’t try to rationalize, just give them a solid NO.

    It is interesting that:

    a. Michael realizes that “no” is described as “for-real” or not. b. Michael is able to recognize which “no” is which. c. Michael lives in a situation where such distinctions are necessary.

    Duck, that’s not a big revelation. Most kids understand that words mean different things for different people. He might have learned it from his parents, he might have learned it from a relative, a teacher or a friend.

    Today’s cartoon just shows that he’s learning what the word means to his grandparents.

    Puppies can recognize human expression practically from birth. I bet ghrandkids are nearly that smart. You have to LOOK like you mean it. Cats probably can too. but they will never admit it.

    There are noes, and then there are noes. You just have to know which one is now.

    You can’t stare down a cat, but picking up the spray bottle works wonders.

    “Is that a real poncho or it that a Sear’s poncho?”
