Ever told your loved one a "NO"?
Consider the analogy below: It's human nature for us to want to keep our kids smiling and cheerful. But you know what? If your kids never get mad at us, or get frustrated or become disappointing, that might be a warning sign that you are not doing job as a parent. 1. How will your kids learn to deal with frustration and disappointment if they never have a practice? 2. How will your kids learn self-discipline if you don't teach them? It is your job to teach these by SAYING "NO"

I don't currently have children of my own but I do agree with what you have stated and it can be beneficial to establish healthy boundaries in any relationship. Telling someone "no" isn't necessarily a bad thing. It is part of setting healthy boundaries and having a desire to value your own inner peace. It also sets an expectation for how you want other people to treat you, with respect and kindness. This is important to teach to children but adults in your life can be taught this concept too. I have learned to say no or walk away from the people in my life (family included) that just aren't treating me well or are causing me heartache and it was the best decision that I ever made! Best of luck to you!

Yeah, I have had to tell my loved ones, a couple of times NO. Telling them NO doesn't mean you hate them. It just means you love them too much to do what they're asking. Because, most times, they could be asking for something that would eventually hurt them. The only way is avert that is to tell them NO>

Other times, they may be asking for something that you cannot afford, the only way is stop that is to tell them a NO. It hurts, I know, but eventually, it's for their own good.

I do tell my loved one a 'NO' but before I tell them that, there must be a reason behind that and the reason will be that it is either I want to teach them self discipline or I am aware of the fact that what they are requesting is against my will.

I tell them often if what they are requesting from me is beyond my will...i am not always scared to say "no" to my loved ones...and i appreciate the fact that my family is a type of family whereby personal decisions of each person is actually respected...

Yeah I have tell not just a loved one NO but about 2 or more

At times saying no is the best answer to a situation. A no doesn't mean we don't care about a person's feelings. A no may actually be the best way that we can use to save a person at times

So I don't see anything wrong in giving a negative reply to a loved one request if the no is necessary
