My son’s favorite word lately is “NO!” Everything is “no”. Pretty much no matter what I ask him he says “no!”
I used to be able to ask him questions like, “can I have a kiss?” And lately instead of him giving me a kiss; it is now “no!”
I want to respect his boundaries and wishes and not force things like kisses on him but I also want him to know how much I love him… so, sometimes I just do not even ask if I can give him a kiss and instead I just steal kisses!
Hopefully this phase will pass soon because I miss getting kisses from him.
