Empty your lunch box! Wash your hands! No screens before homework! What non-negotiable rule do you enforce when the kids walk through the door after school gets out? In our latest “House Rules” episode, Meagan and Sarah tackle the time between when school-age kids get home and the onset of dinner and bedtime. We asked our community for rules, systems or routines that make the after-school time just a bit easier (having a rule can be pure magic because it takes the pressure off of mom!), as well as what small rituals help with reconnecting and decompressing after school. Join us!
- You can find all the House Rules For After School on this Facebook post or this Instagram post.
- Sarah mentioned learning the “two truths and a lie” tactic for asking kids about their school day from somewhere last year, and we dug up the source!

I enjoyed this episode, but have a comment around screen time. While I’m not against it, I have a rule of NO HEADPHONES. I’m finding it very important to know what my kids are watching/being exposed to these days. TV shows, movies, and especially video games have gotten a little inappropriate these days and I like to make sure my kids aren’t being exposed to anything they can’t handle.
