Moms, what rules are you most strict about?

I'm strict about internet usage, playing out front of our house. We may be rural but our house is close to the road by a busy intersection early in the morning and evening . We are also strict about our children being outside alone. We like the buddy system and prefer they go out in 2s, 3s, etc.

We are strict about respect and manners.

Those are the ones coming to mind right now.

What about you?

    I don't think I am really strict at all. I have rules, don't leave the yard after 5, homework before outside, room clean before bed. But my oldest is 9 and he usually just does before I ask and he helps so much with the toddlers I don't mind what he does as long as I know what it is.

        That's a good one and one we try to enforce but struggle with.
