    Default The rules for kids:

    1. Adults know nothing, unless the child likes the fact
    2. Parents know less than other adults, and it's okay to quote a teacher when the facts suit
    3. Grandparents know even less than parents, unless they intend to indulge the child, then GP's know EVERYTHING
    4. The best time to get sick is when M&D are about to go out or work
    5. The best time to go to the toilet is at the checkout, just as you leave the house, just as you get in the car, just as the train leaves the station or the instant M&D start to do something important that requires their full concentration.

    It's always ok to steal food from M&D's plate, they don't mind sharing really :rollseyes:

    The best time to play with that brilliant loud toy is always when M/D are trying to relax or just as your baby brother/ sister finally goes down

    I won't be in trouble if no one sees me do it.

    I must either show off or hide from M&Ds friends / my friends.

    Any food I don't want to eat belongs on the floor.

    If I scream and cry loud enough I will eventually get my own way, even if it takes days of wearing down the responsible adult in charge at the time.

    Everything is a siblings fault. The stolen chocolate, the broken to, the poo in ones nappy / pants. All the fault of a (usually younger) sibling.

    the Weetbix bowl MUST be 'accidentally' thrown on the floor so that the weetbix spray covers everything in a 10km radius.

    If I need to cough I must run to the kitchen and cough on whatever food mum is making.

    Water and food definitely dont taste the same if it isnt on a particular coloured plate or in a particular coloured cup, oh and those colours change daily!
