A story about accepting no for an answer and how to handle the feeling of rejection. Accepting no for an answer is a key foundation of consent. We Accept No builds children's social and emotional skills and helps teach them how to ask for permission, how to respect no, and how to handle rejection. The fourth book in the We Say What's Okay series, We Accept No follows Jamin, who is upset when his friend Zakiya doesn't want to share a great big extra-squeezy hug at the end of the day. With the help of his teacher, Ms. H, Jamin learns why accepting no for an answer is important, what to do with his sad and angry feelings, and what else he can do when someone doesn't want a hug. Using the book as a read-aloud, educators and families can model the language Jamin's teacher uses to support him as he learns how to respect personal boundaries. The author, who hosts workshops and trainings on teaching boundaries and consent for families and early childhood educators around the country, offers additional activities in the back of the book.
