House Rules?
So moms, do you have them? Do your kids know them?

I wonder how many households are working with a written set of house rules for their kids. I don’t mean a list a mile long, but some basic principles that will provide guidelines for your kids. I have four daughters ages 1 to 9. The oldest three  are perfectly capable of knowing what I expect of them. We’re still working on the baby.  The older three even know that every decision they make will result in consequences. They even get to choose whether those consequences are positive or negative by choosing their behavior.

If you have house rules, send them to me. I’d love to see what other families are up to. If you don’t have house rules but would like to see some examples so you can get started
