The Importance Of Written Rules

When starting your domestic discipline lifestyle take the time to sit down together and write down a list of rules that have to be followed or there will be consequences.
These should not be rules for the sake of having rules, they should serve a purpose to help the TIH partner improve on an area that you both feel needs to be worked on.  This could be something like regular cleaning of the home to taking medication regularly.  Do not overwhelm yourselves with lots of rules at the beginning start with a few and then review them together on a regular basis.
Both partners should agree on the rules.
Having written rules allows you to refer to them so both partners know exactly what is expected in the relationship.
