  • Getting yourself and dh on the same page. Some days when he's at work a "rule" will come out of a situation. If we haven't had a chance to connect on the day yet it can cause problems.
    We've caught on and for the most part can seem to tell when the kids are up to something and we will ask the kids, What did Mommy/Dady say about this?

  • Probably just teaching them the rules. They are small and forget easily. Our brains are not fully developed until our 20;s so I imagine a child under 5 probably has a difficult time remember basic rules. I just go over them again and again until they can tell me what the rules are.
