I am just wondering what your basic rules are. Do you let your kids run in the house? Can they play in the living room or just their bedrooms. Do you expect inside voices. I'm struggling with getting a good set of ground rules and would like some input. My SO thinks that their shouldnt be playing in the living room we live in a 4 bedroom house with a huge yard and basement. He feels that the kids should play in their rooms basement or outside. I'm not bothered by them playing in the living room but understand his point that its where he goes to relax and watch tv..
