As your family prepares to go back to school in a few weeks, now is a good time to sit and to not only talk about house rules that keep every one safe, but, to write them on paper to post.
With a new schedule a new baby sitter may come on board. He/ he will need to have rules written out on paper as well. If you happen to be that new baby sitter, now is the time to make up your rules similar to mine.
Rules 9 through 15 are repurposed from one of my archived blogs.
They are just examples to show if you are the new babysitter you will have rules prepared that you expect to be followed for safety. The kids can focus on the fact that you can still be enjoyable to come to their home to care for them while parents are out.
