Just Say No?
At any given moment, our usually happy, two-year-old grandson, Ty, can be heard yelling, “Nooo.” Funny thing is, sometimes at the same he’s saying “no,” he’s using sign language to say “yes.” Two little words, all mixed up.
I have a hunch that toddlers aren’t the only ones who are conflicted about “yes” and “no.”
“Just say no” sounds so simple. It’s like saying, “Just sign here,” or, “Just click there.” Easy, enough. But what does that signature stand for? What are the implications of one easy click? Can one “just say no” alter a life?
I have the privilege of joining Catapult Magazine's current discussion on the topic, "Just Say No." Read the rest of the story at https://www.catapultmagazine.com/just-say-no/feature/the-tug-of-yes-and-no
What's your "yes" and "no" story?
