Top 10 Rules on How to do Summer

This is for moms that have kids/teens home for the Summer. Whether you work at home or outside the home, I think we can all agree Summer Break is highly overated!

#1 Do not get up from bed before 9am. If you do happen to awake - look around your room at all the things you could do without mom asking you to.

#2 Do not expect to be entertained. See #1

#3 Do ALL of your chores before you ask for ANYTHING. See #2

#4 NEVER ever say "I'm bored". If you have a ball or a bike you have NO excuse! If you can't find something to do, I will find something for you.

#5 You are no longer at school-fix your own lunch.

#6 This is not the 7Eleven or Quickmart! Do not bring your friends home to drink up all the bottled water and eat all the snacks.

#7 No you cannot spend the night! Don't wear out your welcome-your friends parents may not want to look at you ALL the time. And don't forget #4!!

#8 Summer is not an excuse to lay around, sleep and watch tv ALL day and this includes Playstation Games etc. GO OUTSIDE! See #1 & #2

#9 Parents are not richer in the Summer! Don't expect field trips, movies or eating out everynight. See #6 & #4

#10 Do I HAVE to see you in that shirt one more day!?!?!


  1. YES! YES! YES! Thank you for your wisdom! I will be printing this out for my 11yr son and have him hang it up in his room so it's the first thing he sees when he gets up. LOL!!!!!
