For instance, I was having trouble getting my son to stop with the pacifier. He's 3 and it was getting old for me. But he never had one at daycare. I asked them if he asked for it, and they said not anymore. I said how did you get him to stop asking for it without him having a meltdown. They said they told him that they didn't have any. Now how simple was that! Yet I never once tried telling him we didn't have any. I would tell him he was too old, or NO, or they were gone with the paci fairy...but i never once said we didn't have any. I never knew he could grasp that concept! And next time he asked for one that's what I told him and he said Ok very sadly but wasn't upset.
