Re: Am I really that much stricter than other Moms?
We don't have those rules, mostly because my kids have some sensory issues that makes them want to move all.the.time. They watch tv and jump up and down. They run laps a lot in the family room. We don't allow jumping off furniture. Running is fine, but our house is very open. Meals are eaten at the table, but snacks are usually picnic style. I absolutely do NOT let them jump or eat anywhere except the table at other peoples' houses, though. They do understand that some things are okay at our house, but not other houses.
