1) Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Give your answers some thought before saying yes or no to a request, but a no means NO. There is no debate. Asking a second time should mean asking for trouble.
2) Combine that solidity with a whole bunch of affection. Lots of hugs and kisses and "I love you's". There should be no question that you love them no matter what they do.
Your love is unconditional. Even when you are disciplining them (maybe especially then) you need to let let know that you will always love them and that it's unconditional.
