“Saying No, Hearing No,” Friend, October 2020
Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to be safe! Saying no when we need to and respecting others when they tell us no are ways we can keep ourselves and others safe.
“No, thank you. May I please have water instead?”
How could you say no in a nice way?
“I don’t want to see that!We shouldn’t be looking at it.”
How could you say no in a stronger way?
“Sorry, you can’t go. It’s not safe.”
What should you do when an adult tells you no?
“Stop! I don’t like this game.”
What should you do when someone asks you to stop?
Walk away if you can.
Tell an adult you trust about what happened.
Remember that it’s not your fault.
No matter what happens, know that your Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ always love you!
