The child asked for a hot water-bottle, because it was cold, but his aunt would stand no nonsense, and packed him off to bed without one.
What does stand no nonsense mean here? that his aunt ignored his request? I don't understand why it looks like a fair request.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
