Ashley: As a parent, I have found over the years that the "keep it simple" philosophy works for my family, particularly for my 13 year old boy who seems to have selective hearing and likes to answer me with one syllable grunts. I found a terrific idea on the Sophistimom blog for house rules that will work for my whole family: Be Safe and Be Polite. What more do you need to say? I have posted the rules on the refrigerator.....can't wait to see how it works!
