Rules. For the orderly function of the home, it is good to set rules in addition to the Ten Commandments. You may have rules of the Room, such as “No clothing items or toys to be left on the floor when they are not in use.” You may have rules of the Table such as “Whatever goes on your plate must be consumed completely without any complaint” and “Do not leave the table without thanking whoever prepared the meal, and asking permission to leave from whoever is at the head of the table.” You may have rules for Family Worship such as “Assembly immediately when the bell is sounded” and “No toys to be held throughout worship.” Do not set too many rules, but when you set rules, make sure that you enforce them with appropriate admonishment or discipline.
