One mom was so determined to make sure her 10-year-old son and his friends had a great time at their sleepover, so she made them sign a "sleepover contract" banning popular sleepover things (via Daily Mail).
The rules, which people are calling this mom "insane" for creating, were posted on Reddit and include the following:
- Touching/tickling of other people will result in immediate physical separation that could remain in place until pickup time. This means we keep our hands to ourselves and off of each other.
- Changing of clothes will be done independently and in a private space with the individual not in company of anyone else. This means no nudity in front of anyone else, whatsoever.
- Disruptions including excess volume of voice or electronics will result in suspension of such privileges. This means, no shouting, interrupting, or blasting the TV or iPad.
- Complaining will not be tolerated. Constructive requests are encouraged in a calm, polite tone of voice. This means, you wait to have my attention and acknowledgement before you start speaking to me.
These rules were put in place by the mom to "preserve her calm demeanor and peace of mind."
I totally understand wanting indoor voices to be used and that each individual boy's privacy should be respected in regards to changing clothes, however, her approach with a CONTRACT is a bit extreme and cold.
