Taking “No” for an Answer
Recommended by the Boy Scouts of America’s Scouting magazine for parents, Taking “No” for an Answer introduces twelve basic skills that prevent or squelch common family problems. To teach these skills, author Laurie Simons developed more than 50 games to help you and your children have fun while learning to change negative family behavior.

The games are presented in an easy to follow, recipe format with engaging illustrations. Taking “No” for an Answer . . . helps you prevent common family problems before they happen or stop them if interaction is out of hand. Either way, you and your children will have fun!
Laurie Simons, M.A. has worked in hospitals, agencies, clinics, and schools, developing strategies and training programs for parents and professionals who raise or work with challenging children. She is in private practice in Bellevue, Washington.
