Inse and the Power of Saying No

Share Adventure

The stories age 4+ are deliberately written in language that is understandable for parents. So extra explanation is (intentionally) required while read the bedtime story. This creates more intense parent-child relationship.

It was a bright and sunny day, and Inse was playing outside with his friends. They were having fun, but then they started doing things that made Inse feel uncomfortable. They wanted to throw rocks at the birds and climb up a high tree that made Inse feel scared.

Inse didn’t want to do any of those things, but he didn’t want his friends to think he was scared. So he went along with them, even though he felt like something wasn’t right.

Later that day, Inse went to his big sister Curity and told her what happened. She listened carefully and explained to Inse that it’s okay to say “no” when he doesn’t want to do something.

Inse asked, “But what if my friends think I’m not cool?”

Curity smiled and said, “It’s much cooler to be true to yourself and do what you know is right, even if it’s not what your friends want to do.”

Inse felt a bit better and thought about what his sister had said. The next time his friends wanted to do something he didn’t like, he took a deep breath and said, “No, I don’t want to do that. Let’s play something else.”

At first, his friends were surprised, but then they smiled and said, “Okay, let’s play something else.”

Inse felt really proud of himself for standing up for what he believed in, and he realized that it’s important to listen to his own voice, his voice of security.

From that day on, Inse felt more confident in himself and his choices. He knew that he didn’t have to do something just to fit in or make others happy. And whenever he felt uncertain, he remembered what his sister had told him and used the power of saying “no.”

As the day turned into night, Inse went to bed feeling happy and secure, knowing that he had the power to make his own choices and stand up for himself.

The End.
