Yes?

    “Yes?”

    When your children call to you or seek your attention, instead of responding with an exasperated “What?” try saying “Yes?” Somehow this slight change is naturally more upbeat. And when you do have to say no, children can accept it more easily when they’ve been answered all day with yes.
