Ok, so to today I was helping take care of children in the children's department at Church, like I do every Sunday.
I am always to nice, and I find it hard to say no, even when I am supposed to... lol
I have tried to talk sternly, but they don't take it seriously, because they know I am not a mean person.
I think they are taking advantage of my kindness... lol
Kids are smart. 😳
I need to fix that. How can I be more stern, so they don't take advantage of me, and my kindness? 😅
I just need to be stern. 😅😂😂

Unfortunately, it's a bit late to be stern. If they already know you to be kind and unable to say no, they aren't going to take you seriously. To kids, even if you give in and say yes one time out of 20, they will always think there's a chance you'll give in. If you try to be stern now, you'll end up having to be mean, and I know you won't like yourself in that role.
I have a 3yo niece and I'm the one they call in when she's being difficult because her mother and grandmother have been known to give in. I've always been unyielding, and she knows I mean business.1
