About the series
In 'Floor Rules' (based on the successful book series by Marjon Hoffman) we follow the life of Floor, a stubborn girl with an original outlook on life. Floor believes that children, just like adults, should be able to come up with rules. And that's what she does. She learns from the things she experiences and makes rules to warn the children of the Netherlands. In each episode two of those rules are discussed. They answer the most important questions of life for a girl of 10. How do you deal with an irritating brother? What do you do when you get a very ugly coat as a gift? What do you do if your best friend has the impetigo and you want one too? Why is carp fishing a man's thing? And how do you deal with it if your father suddenly turns into a fitboy? Floor has seen it all and knows the answers.
