This article provides you some lessons on How to say 'No'. It is the most difficult thing ie to say 'no' to someone you love like your friends but there are some conditions in which children's should learn to say 'No'. In this article I have provided two incidents of two friends. This article will help your children in increasing there internal power and strength to say 'no' to their friends for bad things.

Learn to say 'No'

At times it is very important that we should learn to say 'no' for incorrect and bad things. Here there are two cases for you to learn it.

Case 1

There were two good friends Mohit and Punit. They were in the same class. Once,when they were having there class test, Punit asked Mohit to share answers of some questions. Mohit refused to give answer because he knew Punit was asking him to do a wrong thing. Punit was very angry with Mohit and stopped talking to him. After a few days Punit realised that Mohit was correct in refusing to share the answers with him. He apologised to Mohit and they became friends again.

This is very common incident that happens with all of us in schools or colleges. You know kids, if Mohit helped Punit during their examination that could have led Punit being dependent and he will depend on his friends always during exams which can lead to a bad future. If Mohit while helping his friend by sharing answers to Punit gets caught by their teacher it harm both their future.

There shall be no problem if Punit does not score good marks in his exams he can very will try to become better by studying hard for good result. This will lead to his bright future.

Its better to fail in exams than to gain marks from cheating

Case 2

Once there were two best friends in college Neha and Pooja. One day Pooja asked Neha to skip from classes and want to go for a movie. Pooja refused. She said that studies are more important than movie. The friendship between Pooja and Neha break up after this incident. Did Pooja did that correct thing to Neha?

Most of you say 'yes' considering that friendship as the key role. Such people are not internally strong. Some people knowing that it is not correct tend to accept the things their friends do.

In this case if Neha tend to do what Pooja says it will affect both as it might become an habit of skipping classes which will lead to some serious issues like backlogging in lesson and will in turn lower their study level. So here Neha's Yes can lead to her bad future.

But Neha was internally strong. She has the strength and have learnt to say 'No' to wrong things without worrying about the consequences.

So Kids! One must have the Strength to say 'No' to wrong things. We should do the correct thing without bothering about the consequences.

Remember, people who believe in what they are doing and act with convictions will succeed in spite of obstacles in their path and win against the toughest opposition.
