Boundaries

I am struggling with setting boundaries with out using the word NO. How do you convey to your child that some things are not acceptible and can not be tolerated (violent behavior). :?

Try exchanging the red light into green light - e.g. instead of saying: no and don't try saying: "if you are angry you can hit the pillow or the mattress ". It's important to acknowledge and teach them about their feelings and at the same time our children hate the word NO. My son recently wanted to press the buttons on the washing machine while it was working, when I said: NO, YOU CAN'T he went mad and started to hit me, next time when the same situation happened I said: You can play with pressing the buttons on the machine and the laundry is over - it worked like a charm!:) Of course, there will be challanges but I really recommend this method - I got it from the NLP book for parents by Sue Beever.
Many blessings
