House Rules

The first day that Artichoke and Zucchini were in our house, we had house rules.  We had to create a list of House Rules during our MAPP training.  But to be honest, I had no clue where that list of rules was on the day the boys arrived. So we just started with a few simple things and others were added as needed or requested by Artichoke and Zucchini.

Learning how to effectively discipline the boys, especially Artichoke, took some time is still a work in progress.  We started the first day making our family rules.  It was a group effort with everyone, even Zucchini, giving input.  Here is the list of rules as it stands today.

Always be nice.
Always tell the truth.
Eat healthy food.
Learn from our mistakes.
No hitting.
Share our toys.
No whining.
Always listen.

If we follow the rules, we will be HAPPY and will have FUN! 

What are your house rules?  Are they consistent?  Or a work in progress?
