When You're Tired of Needing So Many Rules

This was a great post I found: Accident vs. Foolishness. It's about parenting by principle instead of getting in the trap of needing to cover every conceivable situation with a rule and STILL having kids trying to argue their way around it. This poster deals with accident vs. foolishness; I always went for the generic NO DEAD BABIES! Mine sounds too extreme to me now but it was so appropriate with a household of five boys and a dad that loved to wrestle and be very active. In case my phrase is too much for you, go read this post and see what you think, it's a really good and useful way to run things!
