Differents rules at different houses?
Do you as the BM/SM feel the other is entitled to enforcing different rules? Such as how much TV or computer time is allotted, which shows are age appropriate for the household, cleaning up after ones self, and/or enforcing self hygeine?
OR should the kids/skids have to follow the same rules for both houses?
Im very interested to hear some stories..

My husband and I were divorced when our children were 2 and 5. They didn't start spending weekends until they were 7 and 10. He agreed that they weren't ready. By that time their father had married a woman that loved kids but couldn't have children. We never had problems with rules or behavior. They were good kids and their father learned parenting from me. The only thing that bothered me is they ate worse there and drank soda. If that's the worst, it sure isn't bad. On Sun evening I would expect it to take them time to calm down and settle back in. My kids are now 27 & 30. The step-mother died and their father and I are both single. We get along and are enjoying our 24 mo grandson.
