When No Doesn’t Really Mean No

We teach our sons about respect and how to respond graciously when someone tells them “no”, and we teach our daughters that they have the right to say “no” and expect that they are taken at their word.  But do we teach our daughters how to respond when THEY are the ones receiving the “no”?  Or have they learned to pester and plead and whine and beg until that “no” turns into a “yes”?

This video includes a few of my thoughts on that very paradox.
