The following is a list of what is expected of you (and family) while in our (my) home:

All chores still must be completed on time.

Complaining, whining, or arguing about rules is not allowed. Chores will be rotated to try to be fair to all involved. If a child, teen or adult refuses to complete their chores on time, they don't eat. The head of house hold here makes the final decisions and is the final authority. Anyone can leave at any time, or people may be asked to leave if they do not participate or cause problems for those staying here.

If you do not feel you (or family members) can abide by these rules, then we cannot help you and suggest you make other plans as there are others scheduled to come to our place in times of emergency and space is very limited.


Let's hope you never have to write this letter, but if you do...get it understood up front what is expected in your home!

---- a friend over at Prepare for the Future put this letter up on the Canadian Preppers Network thread on that forum. I thought I would share it!!!!
