    • House Rules

      Sometime ago, my hubby started teaching house rules to the children. He started with 4 simple rules. They are

      It is a good way to teach the children to obey rules and what they are there for. Every time they break the rules, we will remind them. So far they have been listening and both of them can reside the rules.

      Timothy has his own set of rules, not sure whether it is for us, if only we can read it. The saying goes “children are meant to be seen and not heard”, so if we cannot read it, we can just ignore. :giggles:

      Emily, on the other hand, will shout aloud the rule if kor kor breaks it. She will point and say “rule number 1, 1 drawing paper per day, see, see.”

      It just makes me laugh how they are having fun with rules. Of coz, the one who breaks it will not end up with fun.

    1. I laughed at rule #1. I remember the first time we met Tim…and yea, your boy sure loves to draw.

    2. Jesslyn said on

      why restrict Tim from drawing? You can set rule ask him either keep or threw after drawing ma.

      wow, sleep by 9.30pm!! dunno when my girls will slepp at this hour! 😆

    3. Dropped by from the Giddy Tiger’s place, to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday! And look approvingly at the House Rules!

    4. aiyo, why 1 paper oni a day…..give him more lah

    5. Jess, Jazz:If we don’t restrain Tim, he can chop down a few trees a month. If you do not believe me, ask Vien. He drew on all the paper mat at the restaurant and ask me for more.

    6. So if it’s not on the list, it’s not something to abide by? *wink*

    7. True also lah, paper nowadays expensive also, but why not recycle paper? I’m sure in office got plenty of used paper that can be used provided that they dont contain confidential things.

    8. so cute mei-mei emily !

    9. Emily so cute and smart to remember those rules and as a reminder for kor kor!

    10. So what’s going to happen should anyone break any rule? No tv, no nice treats, cannot play toy ar?

    11. why can only draw one paper per day ler? Hahahah i think yr girl will start to write her own rule also. My niece posted “Only 7 yr old can enter this room” or Only people I like or allowed to come in can enter this room.

    12. Sounds like MR. Ronclark’s except he never restrict 1 drawing paper per day. Hehe..:) Papa is an enviromentalist? Help to save paper? May be can get him a white board with marker pen to let him draw as many times as he wishes. 🙂

      By the way, Happy Belated Birthday to you!!! Eh…how are are you ar? hihi!
