Gabrielle's Parenting Style

This morning as I was chopping some fresh fruit for some homemade pancakes the following conversation took place. I don't remember what Samantha had asked for but my answer had been no which sent her into a typical terrible two-year-old meltdown.

Gabrielle to Samantha: "What's wrong? Aww....what happened? What's wrong?"

Samantha replies: a lot of something I couldn't quite make out and "Mommy say no"

Gabrielle to me: "Mommy, you need to say yes all the time and not make people sad."

Then back to her sister: "It's okay. Mommy will be nice now."
