-You must help out with household chores, as much as you are able.
Chores are not punishment, and there is no allowance paid for performing them. Chores are simply part of being a family member. You are responsible
for your duties, regardless of any deals you make with siblings. If chores are left undone, YOU are the one who will be punished. Punishment means
no TV, no computer, no video games, no phone, and no rides until chores have been completed.
-If you are asked a yes or no question, the answer is "Yes/no Sir/ma'am" as it applies. If you are asked a question that contains the words
"O.K." or "right?", then you can answer with uh-huh or hu-unh, or mmm-mmm or whatever you want. But a direct question gets a respectful, direct
answer. You are entitled to the same responses to your own questions.
-Lying is totally unacceptable. Leaving out material facts when you are asked a direct question is the same as lying. All other family members owe
you the truth, as far as it is your business. Mom and Dad are the final authorities of what IS someone's business.
