House Rules by popular demand.

First let me say that we sat down with the kids and allowed them to ake part in making the RULES.  You may be shocked but my kids thought about what  they didn't like from others and made some good rules.  They also helped and I say that lightly because Mom and Dad had the ultimate call on that.  But they did come up with good consequences too.  We also told them that these rules are amendable by Mom and Dad.  (Yes we had to explain amendable.)   I also want to add that Rule # 2 is mainly for one child of ours that likes to linger getting things done in the morning and doesn't like us starting school with out him.  So with that said here is a copy of our HOUSE RULES.
