Saturday June 3 at 1:30 p.m. The Book of No. Do you feel guilty when your child demands that you launder his soccer uniform immediately?

Newman contends that for many people, saying yes to whatever is asked of them is an unhealthy pattern driven by a need for approval, love or admiration, rather than a desire to help.
