I don’t consider myself to be a ridiculously strict parent. And if I have learned anything at this parenting game in the last 8+ years, it is that there are very few ‘rules’ that fit every family and every child.
My job is certainly to Love my small people and to keep them safe, sheltered and fed….but beyond that, I am in constant state of flux, juggling the ‘what works best’ parenting decisions.
Bedtimes? Food? Study habits? Sports? Playtime? I’m a work in progress. What ‘worked’ last week, doesn’t work today. But do you know what DOES work? Getting advice and suggestions from the people I trust most in the world: other moms, other dads.
After reading about First Lady, Michelle Obama’s rules for her girls, I was curious about the rules YOU have in place and thought I would share mine.
What have you found to be the most beneficial ‘kid’s rule’ in your home? And do you find that your rules are constantly evolving? Would love to know your thoughts!
