Here is what I know from years  decades of working with children as a big sister; a babysitter; Sunday School teacher; a Register Nurse….I almost forgot the mommy and grand mommy role.

  • Children feel more secure when they know the boundaries.
  • Having written rules help everyone know what is expected of each other to feel happy and safe.
