2,000 parents were asked if they’ve added any new “rules of the house” because of the pandemic.  Here are the four most-common house rules we’ve added this year . .  

  1. You have to wash your hands as soon as you walk in the door.  59% of families try to follow that one now.
  2. Cleaning doorknobs and other high-contact surfaces on a regular basis, 49%. 
  3. If you’re around a lot of people, you have to shower as soon as you get home, 48%. 
  4. Wiping down packages before you open them, 43%. 

Yes to all at our house. Nigel had the hardest time adjusting to me washing my hands before the snuggles. But he’s used to it now.
