    Default how to say NO nicely

    Sometime ago I sent an email to a list detailing issues that I've had with my kids - the email is part of a support group for parents. One lady who I don't know emailed saying that she could help with some vitamins or something similar to it - supplements etc.

    The lady was kind enough to give her time to talk to me and send me some information, I want to stay friendly with her but how do I say no nicely without offending her? we do have a lot in common, but I'm really not interested.

    thanks

    I think you should write her a letter saying just what you have said here. It is polite and friendly. I would take it the right way receiving a letter like this

    Maybe email her back saying you are unable to take vitamins as some of them contain products you are allergic too. You could say you are unsure what it is that caused a reaction but that your doctor has asked you to steer clear of vitamins for the time being ( or your children can't have them, whichever is needed).
