BRAT TALK BITES
These are a compilation of our house rules that we established during the SURVIVAL years after fostering and adoption from different parenting sources.
Rude to the supplier = No new supplies
If you misuse it, you lose it.
If you mess it up, you clean it up.
The world does not revolve around you, but was meant to be impacted by you.
Poor behavior costs you, not me.
I cannot make you do anything, but I will hold you accountable.
Choices have consequences and these are the consequences of your choices.
Respectful, responsible, and fun to be with!
Hitting someone in anger is NEVER ok.
Name-calling is not allowed in this house, this house is your safe zone.
Action, not words! (courtesy of Dr. Kevin Leman)

Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Choose the hills you want to die on.- Carey Waldie
Children are not a hassle, they are a blessing to be enjoyed! – God
If you can’t say something nice, don’t say it. – Everybody’s Mother
If MOM can’t say something nice, she shouldn’t say it. – Kimberly Waldie
