You asked, and I FINALLY made the video: I’m sharing the 12 things we do to raise good kids!
– – – – –
SOME IDEAS FOR SETTING BOUNDARIES:
* What time is bedtime? Does it change on certain days?
* Is there a certain time your child can get out of their bed, leave their room, etc
* Purposely hurting others (physically, emotionally) is never acceptable
* When (after breakfast, after lunch, after dinner, how late?) your child can have snacks
* Where can your child take food/drink in your home
* Should your child follow directions quickly, the first time given, etc
* What does your child have to ask before doing?
* Where should your child sleep?
* When an adult speaks to your child, they should…
* How much _______ (screen time, sweets, etc) your child can have in a day
* When can your child go outside?
* Where can your child go when they’re outside?
* Can they have devices at the table? A restaurant? In the car? In their backpack?
* Is there anything they have to wait to do until they’re a certain age?
* We don’t purchase things at the grocery store unless they’ve been added to the list
* What toys are only for outside?
* What should your child avoid doing to the family pets?
* Is your child expected to always tell the truth, be honest with all adults, be honest with parents, etc
* When/how often does your child have to bathe, brush teeth, wash hands, brush hair, etc
* Is your child expected to be kind to others?
* What should your child do if they see someone being unsafe or mean?
* Do they have to be dressed a certain way to be able to leave their room, etc? Is underwear ok? (I have four boys, ya’ll. Getting a few of my kids to want to wear something other than just boxers is sometimes a struggle in our home. Is this something you feel is important to set a boundary for for your family?)
* What can their video games/apps/music they listen to be rated?
