The Duggar House Guidelines

5 Mar

I may think they’re kooky, but they have good household guidelines to follow.

Q: What techniques do you use to handle discipline problems and keep your homeschooling on track each day?

A: The Duggar House Guidelines:

  1. Always use soft words, even when you dont feel well.
  2. Always display kind actions, even if you have been mistreated.
  3. Show joyful attitudes, even when no one is looking.
  4. Have sincere motives with no thought of self-gain.
  5. Think pure thoughts.
  6. Always give a good report of others. Never tale-bear unless physical harm will come to someone. Use Matthew 18.
  7. Never raise a hand to hit.
  8. Never raise a foot to kick.
  9. Never raise an object to throw.
  10. Never raise a voice to yell.
  11. Never raise an eye to scowl.
  12. Use one toy/activity at a time.
  13. Never let the sun go down on your wrath.
  14. Dont go to bed angry or guilty
  15. J.O.Y. Make serving your family a priority. Put Jesus first, Others second, and Yourself last.

Funky playroom mood board

20 Jan

Color Scheme: Chalkboard paint on walls. White trim. White Roman Shades on windows.

1. Paint existing bookcase white and get cute boxes (about $10 each) to store toys.

2. Slipper Chairs – diy instructions at the link. ($20 each)

3. Black and White Striped Rug – paint it from a remnant. ($15)

4. Floor cushions - sew it yourself ($20 each)

5. Table – I expect Dad to make this, along with the rolling storage underneath!

6. Colorful curtains to hide laundry area.

7. Fun Art – Print cool images at home and use a frame from a 2nd hand store. An over-sized Scrabble tile would be simple to make and look tres chic! A gallery wall isn’t complete without an artwork display frame ($15) – for all those art projects that mysteriously multiply.
