Do you have any rules in your house that apply to everyone, even visiting adults?

We are pretty relaxed, such as we don't have people take their shoes off at the door (we have wood floors), but there are things I don't welcome in my home (smoking, for example). It's also never come up, but I don't allow hitting in my house. It's a house rule for my kids and also, my home is my safe zone where I don't have to worry about seeing things like that (it's unsettling for me and always has been) so if someone brings their kids here they better be prepared to use some positive discipline But other than those two things, we're pretty relaxed. People can touch things (we don't have any valuables or breakables out), no room in the house is off limit, people can help themselves in our fridge, etc.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

Here it is customary that everyone takes off their shoes indoors (in homes at least, not in public places) Often if someone is just popping in to pick something up you'd invite them to "just leave your shoes on", but it's usually unspoken that shoes come off.

Smoking is illegal inside any public building here, so smokers about 100% of the time respect other's homes in the same way.

Dh is pretty strict about no hats in the house. At Christmas my cousin brought her 17 yr old boyfriend and dh politely offered to take his coat and hat. He only handed over the coat... dh once again offered a place to hang up his own hat, and he refused. Dh let it go, but he feels it to be very disrespectful, and it's important not to be disrespected in our home by anyone. Otherwise I can't think of any 'rules' that everyone including guests would need to follow.

Smoking, drinking or being drunk, and drugs or being high. I will not be so blatantly disrespected in my own home.

Shoes is a huge thing for us! You cannot enter the house unless your shoes are off. We do not even keep shoes in the house. We have a bin outside the door and they go in there before entering. We are both huge believers that your house is a clean sanctuary and your shoes are disgusting. Sorry ladies!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy
