I would ignore each time he says no. Remember why they call 2 years of age, "the terrible two's?" LOL While i'm ignoring the answer of "no" I would, tho, expect his physical response to be a positive. Also, to combat this phase, or at least to cope, I wouldn't ask things that you aren't really needing an answer to, so that he gets into the habit of being negative. Like don't ask "Do you want a bath?" LOL Just say "Ok, guys, bath time." Don't ask "Do want carrots for dinner?" Just serve them and let him choose whether he'l actually eat them or not. :) Hope this helps.
