Routines and Expectations
Ngā hātepe me ngā kawatau
Families who develop and maintain routines and expectations provide their children with consistency and security in the home, as well as setting them up with good habits for life. Home is the easiest place to learn long-term behaviours, and to understand the concepts of consequences, boundaries and rewards. Families that keep to agreed routines make the constantly changing nature of growing up safe and predictable; exactly what children need to thrive.
