For a while, I have wanted to do something inspired by this post from Anna Maria Horner, a fabric designer (scroll down). I love the idea of a set of family rules, posted and clear.
So I did it. Bolstered by my painter friend, Bonnie, I worked out this rendition for our family. Rule #7 is my favorite.
I'm going to hang this up down in the playroom. It is already being referred to regularly. Olivia comes to me at least twice a day to say "I am ignoring all the mean words that Mimi is saying." (The idea of that rule was to inspire people not to tattle.)
