Am I really that much stricter than other Moms?

I sure seem to be around here based on the reactions I get to our basic rules at play dates.

No running in the house
No jumping on furniture
No throwing things in the house
Meals are eaten sitting at the table

Those are our rules too. Doesn't seem strict to me at all. Those are our all the time rules, not just for playdates.

Oh they are all the time too I just noticed with playdates that no one else seems to have these rules and seems surprised that I do.

Other than the no running in the house, we have the same rules.

I'm down with all of those except the no running. I would prefer no running but my kids are bad about running in the house. We eat meals at the table and we eat crust on bread too.

The bolded is just over the top! I mean come on!....BTW that was in a joking tone. We sometimes eat crusts here but that is me with the issue and DD adopted it.

OP We have same rules here. Running isn't a big deal here but it has been in other houses and is in my grams so I still enforce it.

No running in the house
Unless it is a small house/lots of furniture/downstairs neighbors...why no running in the house?

This is mostly DH's rule due to the 2 inch scar he has from running in the house LOL

Our house is not arranged for safe running and DS1 like to look behind him while running lol. We DO have a big, flat back yard just right for running though!
