dd and ds1 aged 8 and 7 asked to watch supernanny(no idea why???) but sems to have odd effect-ds2 whos erm excitable/hard to handle(little bugger at times)said that the children were awful and it was horrible how they made the mum sad.soooooo i took oppurtunity to discus whats ok and whats not and we decided to make list of 'rules'!.do you think as its there idea they might stick to it???
1.listening 2.polite 3.respect(he learnt what this meand earlier on today and likes it!?) 4.doing as told 5.talk instead of whinge 6.no violence 7.no means no
and both were very clear its for all of us-mummy,daddy and all 3 dc.and we agreed that there will be one warning with an explaination of what rule is broken and that its not exceptable,then if carries on they said a thinking circle(well they said naughty circle i said thinking-no idea why circle?from school maybe).
