What are some of yours? Here's some of mine.

Homework done first.
Chores done second.
Laundry done and put away on your laundry day.
Rooms cleaned each night.
Clothes for tomorrow out and backpacks set for tomorrow.
Shower on your night (girls)
Shower in the morning (ds)
Eat all your dinner.
Read for 20 minutes EVERY night.
Stay out of mom and dad's room and bathroom.
Answer with yes ma'am and sir.

Not nearly half that.  Why stay out of your room and bathroom?

There's 2 other bathrooms in the house and ours is connected to our room. Its an adult area. Just how I was raised. You don't hang out in the parents room. And my bathroom has makeup and lotions and perfumes they don't need to mess with.

Mine are

Throw away your own trash

If you open a door, close it; if you turn on a light, turn it off

Put your dishes in the sink or dishwasher

Put your clothes in the laundry

That's about it. I mean, obviously I expect everyone to be respectful of each other and pitch in with whatever chores they are asked, but I'm not very scheduled with chores.

While I think yours are a bit over the top, I'm sure some think mine were as well (my kids are all adults now and out of the house).

No eating except in kitchen or dining room.

Homework done first.

Stay out of mom and dad's room (see some are the same).

No tv on when it's light out.  (I hate tv, so I made this rule - my husband would let them if I wasn't home).

Do your best at everything you do.

No unnatural colored hair (a personal pet peeve of mine, I hate it)

If you're home sick - you stay in bed in your room.  If you're not sick enough to do that, you're well enough to go to school.  While there, you can read or do simple crafts (during the time ALL my kids had chicken pox, they did paper cranes, lol).  We don't share germs.

Chores done right after snack (no homework here)

Stay out of our room

No going outside unless chores are done and you let me know where you'll be

No snacking outside of meal or snack times

No friends over after 5pm (dinner time)

Clean up after yourself

No fighting

Shower every night

That is all I can think of right now.

Pretty easy going here. No sneaking in to our bedroom (can ask to go in).

If someone is napping you can quietly play or watch tv, don’t be rude and wake them (unless of course they need something).

Oh.  We all hang out in our room to watch tv at times and both kids love showering in our bathroom.

Our only house rules were be helpful and loving and from age ten on you are expected to do volunteer work on at least a weekly basis. We didn't have homework to deal with and household chores were shared informally.
