House Rules

The main purpose of HOUSE RULES is for the child to learn to become responsible for his or her own actions under the control of their parents.  It is a stepping stone to respecting rules at school and in the outside world.

The Rules are ONE FOR ALL AND ALL FOR ONE – they are for everybody, no exceptions and no double standards.  BREAK A RULE and expect to be GROUNDED or suffer a LOSS OF PRIVILEGE.

  1. Family teasing and laughing is healthy but no calling names, no bad remarks, no swearing and no fighting between siblings
