Hello I am new to this group, I am blending a family my new df, and his children and my two. Our house is chaotic at times becasue there is no respect. We are all now in counsaling and she told us to come up with family rules, that we stand by. We need to come up with basic rules, and consequences. I have set some rules in place but I am not sure what consequenses to use...What is appropriate for each child? 8/9/11/13 these are the ages.
Any advise would be great especially on the consquences part.
I have always been lax on punishing my children so they run my life, my df has always been to hard, so his are difiant... we are starting to come together on this now thru consaling but still need some help.
