Telling our children "No" not an option anymore

Can we not teach our children about disappointment?

YORKTOWN - The attorney for the Billy Fischer family, whose daughter was cut
from the Yorktown High School junior varsity cheerleading squad, says her clients have no other option but to sue the school district."

At this point we are planning on going forward with a lawsuit," said Lisa Duke of the San Antonio law firm of Anderson and Duke. "We have not filed the paperwork yet, but we will soon."

Maybe she just wasn't good enough to make the squad. Disappointment happens.

We can't continue placating our kids or life is going to get a lot harder when they think they can just file a lawsuit everytime someone tells them no.
