A Moving Story About Respecting Our Elders - (The Wooden Bowl)
How to Respect Your Grandparents' Rules at Their House
Have the sleeping arrangements all planned and everything ready for the kids to move in.
Pre-Plan the menu around their favorite meals.
Get a water bottle for each child and fill with water or juice, this way you cut on soda,s and the kids can drink whenever they are thirsty.It also eliminates the dozens of glasses you end up washing! Make space in the refrigerator to accommodate the bottles, and clean and refill them every morning.
Stick to a routine.Breakfast, bath time, and sleep time must always be on schedule. This adds to the kids feeling safe.
Listen to them when they talk!Children want to be heard some times.
No running and shouting in the house.Granny may stay in a small home, which can be hazardous for little people running full speed.
Have games available to play on a rainy or cold day.We always take nice photo's of the kids, have a funny face photo session for a change, and join in the fun!
Talk soft and calmly, even if your precious vase has just been broken!
Make use of solitary detention to calm an overexcited or punitive child.No longer than five minutes, and make sure they understand the reason why, as well as what the correct behavior should be.
Get the kids to help you prepare supper.They can take turns to lay the table, and clear the dishes. They can even help you pack a fruit and snack plate!
Have enough toys to keep toddlers busy and out of your drawers.They love to play with empty canisters, boxes etc. Just be sure any dangerous objects have been removed.
Lay your rules down when the kids arrive, and keep to them.Then relax and have fun, enjoy the little visitors. They are your most precious possession.
If something breaks, or the cupboard content ends up on the floor, don't fret.When they are gone, you have all day to tidy your home again. This does not mean they should be allowed to mess and be filthy. Roll up your expensive carpet, and have the bare floor - easier to clean anyway.
Only clean the floors every second day, and get the kids to help.Expect of each visitor to keep her/is own space clean and tidy. After bedtime, run through and clear the loose stuff.
