Re: Am I really that much stricter than other Moms?
Do i find those rules strict? No but they aren't the same as our rules. We don't eat at the table because it is the only place i currently can sew. We don't allow eating in the bedrooms however we do allow eating in the playroom and living areas. We allow jumping/running/throwing of beach balls in the playroom which is pretty large. We allow jumping on the bed everynight for Monkeys jumping on the bed song. We don't allow jumping on couches/chairs/or other beds in the house.
we do not allow hitting, talking back, leaving toys out at the end of the day. We allow sleepovers but only with people we know.
