Okay, I just set up this new rule and DF hates it. My kids take of their shoes and their socks. Without telling me. I can't ever find their shoes or socks and when I do its after a huge freakin search. I am fed up with this. So I told both my DD's that if they take off their shoes and socks then they have to put them away or give them to me. Well they didn't do either. So when they loose there shoes or socks then they can't have another pair. They then will have to wear sandals or flip flops. DF hates this, he thinks that I should just find them their shoes or put on a diff pair and a diff pair of socks every time they do this. I get annoyed cuz I have them wear shoes bc we are leaving. I don't want to go on a search before we leave each time.Answer Question

I would change it just a tad...
First I would not find their shoes for them.. I
remember as a kid...I would say ...hey mom where are my shoes...and she would say I don't know I don't wear them..
I use that with my kids...
Second I would make the rule that when they entered the home, shoes and socks are to be taken off and put in the appropriate place..via laundry room...hamper....what ever...
That rule make take YEARS.....but it is a rule and needs to be obeyed..
They don't make the rules...the parents do...good luck
