Our pastor has been doing a series on family and his most recent sermon was on disciplining children and establishing household rules. It’s been a great series that has confirmed some things that I’ve been thinking about as it relates to the way our house is run and how Lovegirl is being raised.
I am working on keeping the house neater/cleaner. Smoochy is working on disciplining Lovegirl on a more regular/consistent basis. Right now, I’m the “heavy” and would like for us to share this role – not that I won’t spank Lovegirl – I just don’t want to be the only one doing so. Lovegirl is going to work on doing better – behaviorally – at school.
Now, this is where y’all come in. I’d like to have a piece of artwork done (by a truly talented friend of mine) that lists, details, spells out (pick a phrase) our house rules – those things which we will adhere to because we are Christians and because we are the Ourlastnamehere family. But um, er, I can’t think of anything! Okay, that’s not true, I’ve thought of a few things, but I feel like I want more included. I’m not looking for a list of thou shalt nots or anything like that, just a visual reminder of the things we hold important and will strive toward on the daily.
This is what I’ve come up with so far:
Obey God’s Word
Treat Others With Kindness
Respect Ourselves and Others
Be Excellent In All Things
Um yeah, that’s it. Do have anything like this in your home?
What suggestions do you have for mine? Thanks in advance!
