My parenting non-negotiables
Tracy and her kids
The one thing my husband and I have always been firm about is to buckle up regardless of the distance to be traveled. We once traveled 5000km in 2 weeks when the girls were 2 years and 4 years old. They spent the entire journey in their chairs. They never complain because they don’t know what it’s like NOT to wear a seat belt and they know it’s non negotiable. Even when we are not around to enforce the rule, they insist on being buckled up. They are now 8 years and 10 years old.
