If you could make a Code of Conduct list for your children what would it include?

I will be making one today for my teens. I address the normal conduct I expect, Honesty, punctuality, doing your best in school. I also provide for rude behavior, talking back, and disrespect. Do you have things you would add?

  • Have a daily act of kindness. Have you hugged someone today?

  • Dress modestly and appropriately ---I'm all for people including teens expressing themselves but not to the point of exposing rear ends and showing so much skin you're putting the local prostitutes to shame.
    Treat your body with respect and respect yourself in general. Don't do something just because everyone else does it or your girlfriend/boyfriend says the "L" word. That L word is a lot of the time mistaken for another L word and if you arent careful you could find yourself with a broken heart if you're lucky, an unplanned pregnancy or an STD if you aren't. On that note, if you are grown enough to play that roulette game, be grown enough to come up with birth control (We've discussed the options and I'm not supplying, sorry) and/or be grown enough to take responsibility for what happens.

  • Compassion, kindness, love for your fellow human being.

  • My list would be:

    Respect - for oneself and for others
    Striving to reach your potential

    Honestly, I think everything could be covered in that... But I could be wrong. :)
