The Most Important Rules
(according to two preschoolers…)
I got such a kick out of Mia and her friend, Lyla, chatting about important rules, I had to write them down.
Here are The Top 10 – verbatim!
1.) Don’t mess up anyone else’s room.
2.) If you push someone, say sorry.
3.) Don’t take anyone’s money.
4.) Never put your feet on the table.
5.) Don’t put band-aids or stickers on chairs or walls or the floor.
6.) Turn off lights to save ‘lectricity.
7.) Only Hibachi cookers can touch fire, not kids.
8.) Hold frogs gently.
9.) Never cover your ears if someone is reading or singing.
10.) Always tell the truth.
Although Early Childhood teachers and parents will tell you rules need to be worded positively, like number #10 above, I think in general, this list is a pretty good start toward being safe and happy.
Thank you Mia and Lyla for your wisdom.
