Hello again! I hope you guys have had a great week. We have had family in town and I’ve been a slacker! Most of our family lives far away, so we stop what we are doing when they come for a visit. My husband’s family is from Colorado which means a plane trip for them or us. My siblings are in Texas and Dubai, which is definitely a plane ride away.
We still have a sister in town, but I didn’t want to leave my sweet readers hanging. I decided to do a short and simple post that I’ve been saving.
Back when the chalkboard craze hit, I decided to try my own chalkboard family rules. I love all the new fancy fonts, the chalkboard doodles, etc., but a few years ago I wasn’t sure how to put it all together. My chalkboard skills have improved greatly, but if you like it simple, you may enjoy this.
Here is a copy of our family rules from a few years ago. Download those rules here: chalkboardrules
Those rules were in our kitchen for a long time until my oldest Piggy started preschool. We needed some simple rules for our toddlers – ones that we could review before school each morning. I tried to think of a way to help him remember his rules by using parts of his body. It seems to work great!

He is getting to the point where we need to start moving his name, and adding some rewards and consequences. For now, we use time-out. We read the book 1, 2, 3…Magic last year and loved it! It was a game changer! Piggy One still has a hard time, but I have to remember that he is 3. If you have not read this book, and you are looking for a good foundation for discipline, I would highly recommend it!
How do you track your rules? I am always interested how parents handle their little Piggies at home. (This post contains an affiliate link, but the views of the product are my own.)
