IF you asked your child to make up your house rules, what would they be?!
Scary thought I know (!), but do you think you can imagine what they would come up with?
When I asked my daughter Elsie to come up with her own house rules (as above), I got quite the shock. Some of the things I was kind of expecting – like ‘eating chocolate for breakfast’! – but others, well, they’ve actually really made me think!
In fact let’s just say I’m not as stringent when it comes to tidying up her bedroom anymore.
As parents we tend to think we know everything about our kids, but my little chat with Elsie about house rules, showed me that actually we don’t.
We had such a laugh coming up with her house rules and more importantly, it was a really lovely way of finding out what is important to her in our home.
Fancy having a go yourself? Why not ask your child / children to come up with their own house rules?
