Sure :) rules apply to mommy and daddy as well so adult rules are just as important.

Lol don't be an a*****e. Something I'd totally post proudly on my wall. Moreso for me than for my kids, they're pretty sweet.

Use your manners
Be nice to everyone (pets too)
Use listening ears
Inside voices
No backtalking, tantrums, hitting, kicking, biting or throwing



those are some that we use for our household rules.

We don't go to bed angry. We apologize and make up if we had an argument that day.



Wash hands after using the bathroom.



Turn the lights and water off when it's not being used.



We say "please" and "thank you."



No wearing shoes in the house.

Obey right away
Clean up the toys you were playing with before getting more out
Brush your teeth before bed and in the morning.
Try it, you might like it

Be considerate (which to us, means no stomping around and jumping up and down since we have downstairs neighbors)
Use your manners

We don't have rules really, just expectations. Normal things like use your manners, don't talk back, use your listening ears, behave in general, and clean up after yourself.

We only have one basic rule:
Treat each other how you want to be treated. Respect.

That was all I could come up with but I wanted some examples for the kids.



I have treat others how you'd like to be treated.
Speak kindly
No yelling
Respond when someone speaks to you
Use words, not violence
Food stays in the kitchen unless we have company
If mommy says no, daddy says no, and vice versa



We are posting morning and nighttime checklists as well.



Breakfast
Potty
brush hair and teeth
Get dressed



Bathtime
Brush hair and teeth
pj's
Book
Bed



I think A needs a visual reminder to transition. It's like she wants to go somewhere every morning, but cant understand why we cant leave now when she's hungry, has to pee, and isn't wearing pants.

Visual reminders are a great idea. And I see no issue with giving kids reason's why they need to do different things.
