The Basics0 Know the house rules. Kids are more manipulative than you might think.0 Be directionally savvy. Know how to from their school back home.0 Have an awareness of child car-safety rules. Most kids sitting in the front seat are NOT 100 lbs.
For Afterschool Events0 Be tough. You know they have homework to get done.0 Rain doesn’t kill anyone. They will be o.k. going to soccer practice.0 Cookies don’t count.0 Don’t be a sucker. If mom would say no, say no.
Weekends and Evenings0 Make a plan ahead of time, and make it very clear from the get-go.0 Pick your battles. Staying up a half-hour later probably won’t kill them.0 Yes, you have to brush your teeth.0 Stick to your guns. If they make a deal to stay up that half-hour later, stick to it.
The Less Obvious0 Do keep track of how long you work. A busy mom probably won’t.0 Do be clear about when you have to leave. Don’t be afraid to say no. 0 I.e: “No, I can’t stay another hour longer than planned, just so you can go for a run”.0 Don’t wear jeans to the country club. You will be judged by privileged pre-teens.
