There are two little people in our family.
We have a strategy – keep them safe, feed them healthy stuff (mostly!), help them grow and develop to be their best selves
We have expectations of their role – we’re clear on what counts as ‘good’ or ‘unacceptable’ behaviour (be kind, don’t hit!), we ask them to do certain things (like polishing their own school shoes on a Sunday night – a cosy hangover from my memories of my own childhood!) and we try to be consistent with these expectations so they know where they stand
