F is for....


Since we moved, manners seem to have gone out the window and every day courtesies have pretty much been forgotten. This has lead to some arguing, some fighting, (a little yelling) and a whole lot of frustration.

It's time to take control and get things back under control before chaos completely takes over. I pulled this book off my shelf and made some lists. We're starting with Rules for Being a Good Housemate which includes things like:

~ Pick up what you leave around the house
~ Hang up your towel
~ Say "Please", "Thank you", "You're welcome", and "Excuse me"
~ Put the toilet seat down
~ If you break something, take responsibility
~ Don't contradict
~ Use inside voices

There are more. The list is actually quite long but these rules are nothing new to the boys. They just need a few reminders and a little refresher course.

The next chapter we'll tackle is on table manners.
