House rules *edit*

 Do you have a set of house rules?

If so, would you mind sharing them?

Do you have them written out and posted where you kids can see them?

Just curious...

 

 Edit *Okay, so I will add ours, but I'm thinking of changing them a bit.  I want to post them in the house on something... other then a white board on the fridge.

 

Respect - Treat others how you would like to be treated.               

                 Respect your body, mind and heart.                                 

                 Have reasonable expectations of yourself and those around you.

Responsibility- Take responsibility for your own actions.

                        Be responsible for your own things. 

                        Pick up after yourself. 

                        Be helpful and kind. 

                        Do what needs to be done first then you can have fun.  

Reason- Think before you say or do anything. 

              Plan ahead.

              Talk out your problems. 

              Ask for help when you need it.

              Consider how others feel and think.

Rejoice- Think positive thoughts.

               Say positive words to each other.

                Look for the good in others.

                Recognize the good in yourself.

               Rejoice in the positive things in life.

We have rules but nothing written down. We just have let dd know when she does something wrong and what to do different. If she repeats it then there is a consequence.

Couches are for sitting. No yelling. Clean up after yourself. Share. Talk nice. Hands to yourself. Food and drink stay in the kitchen/ dining room. These are posted rules they also have a chore chart

1. Respect one another.
2. Be kind.
3. Do no harm.

That's all of our rules. We made a poster together and hung it on the wall in a frame.

Yes, I have ten short easy to read rules posted to my fridge and the kids are sent to read them when I get tired of repeating the house rules. It's fairly effective. Indoor voices, no running, ask for help (yes, this is a rule! esp if a sibling is making them angry). Use things the way they are supposed to be used. and a few others. I think there are 10 total

 I really don't know because I didn't really care. He however was mortified when one of the boys sat down with no shirt. That is just one rule he won't budge on. Once in a while one might make a mistake and sit down, but they quickly remember and get up lol
