Three rules of dinner

  1. Sit in your seat
  2. Try everything
  3. Don’t make a mess

On Friday, I set up these as the rules of dinner.  Miles liked the idea and is pretty good at following them.  He makes up new rules too and most of them are sensible ones but I’m trying to keep it to those three because that’s all we really want and it’s simple so they are more likely to be followed.

We also have the three rules of bathtime which are

      1. No splashing water out of the bath
      2. NO SPLASHING WATER OUT OF THE BATH
      3. NO SPLASHING WATER OUT OF THE BATH

the three rules of bedtime which Miles made up and are

  1. Daddy has to read 2 stories
  2. Put your pajamas on
  3. Stay in bed

and the rules of morning, which aren’t as catchy

  1. You can come and sleep in mummy and daddy’s bed any time
  2. You can play in your bedroom if it’s light
  3. You can only play in mummy and daddy’s room if the sun is up (on the gro clock, 0630 weekdays, 0700 weekends)

Even those ones are being followed so far.  Of course it’s fun and new at the moment, the trick is going to be sustaining them but I’m pretty hopeful.
