After almost 5 years,you'd think we would have figured this out already. But it seems like a never-ending process. Trying to find routine and rules that fit our needs.
As it is, our rules are pretty simple:
- Respect one another (No hitting, punching, kicking, backtalk, etc)
- Respect the house (Pick up after yourself, don't break things)
- Listen & do as you're asked (Works much better in theory)
Maybe it's because I grew up without a lot of rules, but it's been tough for me to know how to set them. But I also know the house runs so much smoother with them in place.
Do you have set house rules? How do you make sure the house runs smoothly?
