Sacred Rules

Every parent has rules. But most of us only think we do.

It’s useless to have an “in bed by 9 PM” rule if you’re never going to follow up on it.

If your child knows that the “we don’t speak while eating” rule is only active once every two or three days, then that is not a rule. It’s just a disturbance of their normal day.
