Why Jennifer Garner encourages families to have a Yes Day

Once a year for almost a decade now, Jennifer Garner has a Yes Day with her children, and she is encouraging other families to have one, too.

Her family-comedy film “Yes Day” is inspired by her own Yes Days over the years, which started after she encountered the best-selling children’s book of the same title by the late US author Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

Such is her commitment to a Yes Day that even the COVID-19 lockdown didn’t stop the 48-year-old mom of three from holding one. The basic concept of a Yes Day is that parents are not allowed to say no to their children’s requests or “asks” for 24 hours — a practice seen to spice up family life and strengthen bonds.

In Yes Day the film, wherein she’s both star and producer, Jennifer herself got to say “yes” to things she wouldn’t dare do before. Because she’s terrified of roller coasters, she screamed for real when she rode the Twisted Colossus in the film.

Yes Day launched on Netflix on March 12.
